Mark Merritt and Pearlynn Houck presented to the Association of Corporate Counsel's Charlotte chapter. Their CLE addressed some of the more complex issues that arise in conducting an effective and efficient internal investigation. They walked through the preliminary decisions about whether to conduct an investigation at all, who should conduct and supervise an investigation, and how best to report on and document an investigation. The presentation also addressed tricky issues that can arise in investigations, including privilege, experts, confidentiality, investigations involving company executives, and the overlap of investigations and public relations.
