Our Practice Areas

Internal Investigations

When your company faces workplace complaints or regulatory investigations, proactive crisis management is what matters most. Our attorneys have extensive experience conducting internal investigations on behalf of some of the largest public and private corporations in the world, as well as for numerous institutions of higher education. In every investigation, our attorneys prioritize both thoroughness and discretion, always with an aim to provide management a comprehensive understanding of what has occurred and an assessment of their options for responding. Walsh attorneys regularly lead investigations into such issues as sexual harassment and employee misconduct, as well as more arcane, complex matters, including corruption in the workplace, whistleblower allegations under Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and Dodd-Frank Act (DFA), and governmental investigations. In addition, Walsh attorneys act as independent Title IX investigators for institutions of higher education, investigating highly sensitive student complaints pertaining to sexual assault, stalking, and gender-based discrimination and harassment in the educational context.
