Internal Investigations aim to uncover the truth about alleged misconduct within an organization. These investigations take place in Fortune 500 companies, medium-sized businesses, and even smaller closely held businesses. When employees violate company policies, these security threats often cost businesses money, a sense of security, and until the matter is resolved, business cannot continue as usual.
Companies and corporate directors trust Alex R. Hess to perform internal investigations to investigate:
- Accounting fraud
- Outright theft of physical assets
- Unauthorized access, to manipulate data or to sell it
- Threats, sexual harrassment or other inappropriate forms of behavior or communication
- and usurping corporate opportunity
Internal investigations require advanced financial analysis, detailed review of corporate records, security footage, software and metadata details, and other business records. A good internal investigation protects the company, protects innocent employees, and uncovers the root cause of a company’s security breach. Our Firm is experienced and can provide these needed skills to help companies through challenging investigations.
