We leverage our experience to conduct sensitive and high-profile internal investigations for our clients. We also help clients navigate investigations to mitigate reputational, regulatory, and litigation risks. 

Clients trust Greene Espel to conduct their most sensitive and critical internal investigations. Whether prompted by a government subpoena or civil investigative demand, a whistleblower, or simply a suspicion of wrongdoing, our investigations are thorough, efficient, and tailored to our clients’  concerns. 

Greene Espel’s unique structure allows us to design investigative approaches that best suit our clients’ needs and the parameters of each investigation. We have the experience and personnel needed to handle all aspects of significant investigations. We also have experience working with clients to leverage their in-house investigative resources and outside document review partners to avoid unnecessary cost, and rely on our trusted network of private investigators, forensic accountants, and digital forensic consultants to efficiently gather the facts our clients need to make informed and timely decisions.  

Clients frequently ask Greene Espel to conduct investigations as part of a coordinated defense of a criminal or regulatory inquiry, or that have important employment and human resources implications. At every stage, we stand ready to advise our clients on the appropriate steps to take based on our investigative findings, including employment actions, compliance policy changes, or self-reporting to regulators or law enforcement agencies and pursuit of declination or cooperation credit where appropriate.
