Internal Investigations for Corporations
Corporations often get the unfortunate news that they are directly or tangentially implicated in a federal criminal investigation. Many times, it behooves that company to cooperate with the United States Attorney’s Office or the Department of Justice and its investigative agencies. Just as often, it is helpful for the company to conduct its own internal investigation. Michael has led countless white-collar investigations, coordinating federal agents from the FBI, IRS, EPA and other agencies, and worked directly with corporate counsel. If they provide helpful cooperation to the government, these companies can usually avoid indictment and large fines, as their helpfulness will be heavily credited. Michael’s point-on experience in these situations is invaluable to conducting internal investigations and acting as a deft liaison to the federal government. In addition, Michael’s wide-ranging knowledge and exceptional writing ability allows him to formulate precise compliance policies to keep the company from becoming embroiled in future investigations. Finally, Michael has abundant experience appearing before federal grand juries and can therefore expertly represent any grand jury witness.
