Online CLE Internal Investigations

Internal investigations are important measures for companies to ensure the security, compliance, and ethical standards of their businesses. These measures are necessary to improve one's protection program against threats that arise internally, and to prevent these threats from posing worse problems in the future. Moreover, conducting an effective and efficient internal investigation also helps companies minimize the risk of investigations from outside counsel, thus, saving them from costly and tiresome investigation probes.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to help the audience better understand the significance of having an effective and efficient internal investigation program. Speakers will bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of establishing and conducting these investigations - from problem identification to proper actions to be taken, among other things.

This Webcast will discuss the following topics:

  • Components of Internal Investigation
  • Effective and Efficient Internal Investigation Program in 2018

  • It is very important to clearly define the objectives and scope of an internal investigation at the outset.
  • It is also important to decide who within the organization will direct and control an internal investigation.
  • Once the objectives and scope have been defined and a decision has been made as to the individual or group that will direct and control the internal investigation, a detailed investigative plan should be prepared.
  • At every stage of an internal investigation, it is important to be mindful of the attorney client privilege and what actions, including disclosing investigative findings to the government, may trigger a privilege waiver.

Murphy & McGonigle, founded in 2010, was created based on an innovative law firm model that rigorously controls overhead while providing its attorneys and clients with state-of-the-art technology and litigation support to ensure both world-class service and maximum cost-efficiency. In the years since the financial crisis, that model has become increasingly attractive for clients in the financial services industry which has driven the rapid growth of the law firm.

For the fifth year in a row, U.S. News & Best Lawyers selected Murphy & McGonigle as a National Tier One Law Firm. This year, we were honored in Securities Regulation, Litigation – Securities, and Corporate Law. Only 25 firms received National Tier One recognition in all three areas with Murphy & McGonigle as the youngest and smallest firm among those 25 listed, by far.

Murphy & McGonigle serves the litigation, enforcement defense, and regulatory counseling needs of clients across the full spectrum of the financial services industry – from national banks, broker-dealers, investment advisers, and hedge funds, to national and international securities markets and exchanges. Many of the firm’s partners formerly served in senior positions at the U.S. Department of Justice, SEC, FINRA, and CFTC and several served in senior executive positions in major financial institutions on Wall Street. Murphy & McGonigle operates out of offices in New York, Washington, D.C., and Richmond, Virginia.
