The criminal defense and business attorneys at Sumner, Schick & Pace regularly provide counsel and investigatory services to corporations who suspect an employee, a group of employees, or a competing business has run afoul of the law.
Clients seek our counsel because of our unflagging efforts to minimize criminal and civil exposure. When possible, we attempt to help avoid indictment of the company and pinpoint any responsible parties.
Through private investigators and our own expertise and resources, we conduct confidential investigations in order to uncover any evidence of wrongdoing. During an internal investigation, our attorneys are mindful of the potential collateral consequences associated with the matters under investigation. We strive to earn the trust of the target of the investigation while ethically preserving the legal interests of the organization and the individual. We work discretely in order to shield our results from inappropriate disclosure. And we balance corporate cooperation with government authorities against the need to protect the organization’s legal interests.
