Any company may need to commission an internal investigation for several reasons. Whatever the reason is, MJR Solicitors are experts in carrying out independent corporate internal investigations and will help you conduct a full investigation to prove or disprove any suspected wrongdoing within the company or help when you need to respond to a regulator or enforcement agency.

What is an internal investigation?

An internal investigation is a formal inquiry by a business or organisation to establish whether any internal policies, rules and/or regulations have been breached. But an internal investigation can also take place in the business context of a due diligence report, usually before a corporate merger or acquisition.

Internal investigations usually begin after a company has been made aware or informed by either an internal or external source that potential misconduct has occurred. Different examples of why internal investigations can start include law enforcement or regulatory information requests, complaints, media reports, audits, or whistleblower claims.

The main goal of any internal investigation is to prove or disprove the allegations. Because of this, the investigation’s process and procedure needs to be quick, fair, and thorough.
