In today’s challenging regulatory environment, corporations must promptly and thoroughly investigate alleged wrongdoing and potential exposure. Armstrong Teasdale lawyers have extensive experience conducting internal investigations for clients, both in the United States and abroad, investigating regulatory compliance, contract performance, financial management and employee misconduct, including fraud and harassment.

Internal investigations are a powerful tool in mitigating risk. We work closely with clients and prosecutors to resolve matters before charges are filed. By conducting thorough internal investigations, our attorneys have had success in preventing emerging actions and limiting government intervention, as well persuading regulators to decline pursuing charges. From interviewing employees and reviewing business records, to negotiating with prosecutors for favorable disposition short of criminal prosecution, engaging counsel to conduct an internal investigation before a disgruntled employee becomes a whistleblower is key.

The best investigators distinguish between distractions and key issues, track down reluctant or recalcitrant witnesses, and testify confidently and effectively about their findings. Such “street smarts” are hard to teach, and come from years on the job. Our distinguished trial team includes a fellow of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers and former federal prosecutors who have conducted high-profile, highly publicized investigations for both the public and private sectors across a range of industries. In addition, our team includes judges and clerks in jurisdictions across the country and is supported by attorneys in other practice areas firmwide with varied government agency experience, including the former Missouri Commissioner of Securities. They work closely with regulatory bodies and enforcement agencies including the Department of Justice and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and understand the risk and cost of noncompliance.

Companies can proactively manage risk by instituting strong corporate governance and compliance programs to ensure that they are operating within the regulatory guidelines of their respective industries. Our attorneys have instituted compliance programs across a range of industries and include a Certified Ethics and Compliance Professional with significant background conducting compliance reviews and training, and advising public and private companies on compliance issues.
