Investigations often take place where there is an allegation of wrongdoing. They are a crucial process, enabling organisations to establish facts, identify problems, and determine how best to proceed. Carrying out a thorough and fair investigation can enhance an organisation’s credibility and lead to the introduction of new and improved arrangements to help prevent incidents occurring again.

We’ve pulled together a mini guide to help you prepare for some of the twists and turns that may be thrown up, including what to consider at the outset of an investigation, how to manage disclosure of information to third parties, and an overview of legal advice privilege and litigation privilege.

On 2 October we will be hosting a workshop at our office in London, ‘Anatomy of an Investigation Part 2: Managing Outcomes – Key Considerations’. Please register your interest in attending here.
