Best & Flanagan’s employment and labor lawyers frequently serve as independent, third-party investigators for large and small companies. As neutral investigators, we investigate complaints brought by employees, board members, regulators, or other constituents of a company, with the goal of providing an unbiased report of the facts. When appropriate, we collaborate with our regulatory and criminal lawyers to address concerns of serious employee misconduct.
Our approach is practical and client-specific: we tailor our investigations and reports to the unique needs of the particular matter, and provide an investigative report designed to give our client the strongest basis for remediating any situations that present legal risk to the company. We are keenly attuned to the varied and unique role an investigator plays, potential privilege traps, the prospect of being a witness in litigation, and conducting focused investigations with sensitivity and discretion.
