Wrongdoing by corporate executives and employees is a risk that all companies should be prepared for. If such incidents are not addressed in a timely manner, or response measures are taken without a full appreciation of the risks and liabilities involved, companies could face reputational harm, economic damage, loss of stakeholder confidence, and other consequences. The “Initial Response” upon the discovery of wrongdoing is essential in achieving a satisfactory and timely resolution to such incidents. Our lawyers, who have significant experience in this area, can help companies to formulate the most effective “Initial Response” in light of the situation, and provide practical advice in dealing with the aftermath of such wrongdoing such as on appropriate disciplinary action and any civil claims or criminal charges, and assist companies with instituting compliance programs and preventive measures.
