Best Practices and Tactics for Conducting an Internal Investigation in the COVID-19 Era


As the global economy struggles and companies continue to adapt to disruptions, organizations are facing an increased likelihood of whistleblower claims, bad behavior and market-facing allegations that require an internal investigation.

Senior leadership and boards of directors have a duty to conduct these sensitive investigations in an appropriate, defensible and timely manner, but as we’ve seen, unique challenges have arisen from this era of social-distancing protocols, travel restrictions and other safety measures.

Join us to hear from McDermott white collar lawyers about their recent experiences conducting internal investigations and related topics, such as:

  • The current landscape for conducting an internal investigation, and heightened risk areas
  • Tips for recognizing when your organization should retain independent counsel to conduct an investigation
  • Tactics to use in the COVID-19 era while remaining compliant (e.g., collection and preservation, documentation and interviews)
  • The impact of parallel or potential government investigations
  • Steps you can take now to prepare for an internal investigation

Your questions will help drive the Q&A portion of this webinar, so we encourage you to note in the “Questions & Comments” box areas in which you could use additional guidance.
