Conducting investigations properly, whether it be for an organization or an individual client, requires years of experience and “know-how” to legally gather the relevant evidence, testimony and supporting details in a manner that is not disruptive to an organization and that is proportionate to the matter under investigation. Of almost equal importance to conducting the investigation properly is the assembly of the gathered information in a report that accurately reflects the findings and is both definitive and easy to comprehend. While this may seem obvious, many investigative efforts are conducted without the consideration of relevant laws, jumping to conclusions that are not supported by the facts developed and documented in a report that is poorly organized. Improperly or poorly handled investigations may create more liability for an organization than no investigation at all.
