INTERNAL INVESTIGATIONS

INTERNAL INVESTIGATIONS

If you or your organization is being scrutinized, both your business and reputation can be on the line.

 

Whether your company is being investigated by the government, a regulator, or you simply need to get to the bottom of an internal issue, we can help.  

 

We have experience defending against government investigations and enforcement actions, as well as conducting independent internal investigations.  

 

Often times, businesses or non-profits need an independent party to conduct an internal investigation to get to the bottom of an internal matter.  Sometimes that’s an allegation of abuse, professional misconduct, or financial malfeasance.  Whatever the issue, we’re here to serve as that independent third party.  

 

Generally speaking, an internal investigation will involve reviewing documents and policies, conducting interviews of relevant employees, and legal analysis.  Our services are meant to provide you or your organization with the necessary information and clarity so that you know how to best move forward. 

 

We combine big firm experience with small firm attention.  Let us put our experience to work for you.

  • Government Investigations

  • Tax Investigations

  • Regulatory Investigations

PROTECTIVE ORDERS & DOMESTIC

PROTECTIVE ORDERS & DOMESTIC

Protective Orders are civil orders intended to protect someone from the abuse or harm of another.  They are often referred to as restraining orders.  They can be sought in the General District Court or in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.

 

Generally speaking, the standard for a judge to issue a protective order is whether the petitioner can show the Court that he or she was subjected to an act of violence, force, or threat that resulted in bodily injury or at least placed him or her in reasonable fear of death, sexual assault, or bodily injury.

 

If a protective order is issued against a party, it acts as a legal prohibition against that person.  It often demands no contact and no communication.

 

Protective orders are serious matters.  They restrict one’s liberty in a variety of ways, including potentially impacting one’s right to possess or transport firearms.

 

We represent both petitioners and respondents in protective order matters.  We have significant experience both fighting for protective orders and defending against them.

Whether you are looking to get a protective order or defend against one, let us help you.  We also handle associated domestic and family issues.

 

Let us put our experience to work for you.

  • Emergency Protective Orders

  • Preliminary Protective Orders
