Internal Investigations

Businesses and staff can face civil or even criminal proceedings resulting in huge fines and suffer irreparable damage to reputation. A rapid and decisive response is critical.

Uncovering internal misconduct such as fraud, theft, or corruption, or discovering that you company has breached industry regulations, can have a devastating reputational and commercial impact on your business.

The Khan Partnership’s multi-disciplinary team will always take swift and proportionate action to conduct discreet and carefully focused internal investigations. We will identify and manage the issues with minimum disruption, leaving you to run your business.

We proactively manage demands from regulatory bodies and enforcement agencies, we gather evidence and where ever possible detect and advise on regulatory, civil or criminal issues before they become formal proceedings.

Instructing experienced internal investigation lawyers can also attract the essential protection of legal privilege which may ensure communication between you and your legal team remains confidential.

Where regulatory or criminal breaches come to light we can advise on the issues and how to mitigate future risk. We will explain your legal obligations and whether there is a duty to report what has been uncovered. 

Our international expertise ensures we are well-placed to undertake internal investigations that require multi-jurisdictional knowledge and capability. We regularly work closely with law firms across the globe and utilise our established international network of contacts to help co-ordinate the investigation to achieve the best outcome for you and your commercial needs.

We were recently instructed to confidentially advise the management board of a multinational manufacturer in relation to alleged corrupt practises by a senior manager in one of its subsidiaries. Having mounted an investigation to gather the necessary evidence the individual was removed and corrupt supplier relationships renegotiated.
