Murray Law LLC has extensive experience conducting, and defending individual employees in, internal corporate investigations. It is acutely aware of the sensitivity of these investigations, their public relations impact, and potential to transform into formal regulatory investigations, including criminal ones. It is especially cognizant of the complexities involved in preserving privilege in this context, the rewards and downsides of cooperation, and the implications of Sarbanes-Oxley and D.O.J. policies.
Murray Law LLC has represented and counseled professionals, employees and students facing internal disciplinary proceedings, which can impact their lives as deeply and severely as a criminal conviction. Murray Law LLC brings skills honed in sensitive high-level investigations to these multi-faceted matters, which often operate under more informal and opaque procedures.
