– Ancient Greek aphorism
If your company needs an internal investigation, you have a dangerous situation that requires highly-skilled and experienced outside counsel. Such investigations pose a thicket of potential problems, like privilege waiver and independence challenges. Rivero Mestre has conducted internal corporate investigations in the United States and in foreign countries involving varied allegations of wrongdoing from securities fraud to accounting malpractice to Foreign Corrupt Practices, while crossing languages, borders, and cultures.
We have also represented companies and boards in derivative and other litigation related to internal investigations, and we have advised clients about their rights under D&O insurance policies.
