Taylor English is often brought in to lead serious, non-routine investigations when there are:
- Allegations of wrong-doing by senior management,
- Possible serious criminal conduct,
- Shareholder derivative demands, or
- Threats to a company’s reputation or capacity to conduct business.
If it’s our first engagement with you, that may be an advantage. We may be retained by a company’s in-house counsel, regular outside counsel or outside auditor because retaining a law firm not previously associated with the company ensures an objective investigation. This is particularly important when the company wants to mitigate possible sanctions by self-reporting a regulatory violation or run its own investigation parallel to a government inquiry.
