Government contractors routinely confront the need to conduct internal investigations, whether triggered by a government investigation, whistleblower complaints, concerns raised through audits, or for other reasons.  A well-planned and executed internal investigation can define and contain legal and financial exposure, while a flawed effort can have severe negative repercussions.  Join us for a practical guide to conducting internal investigations including best practices for preserving, collecting and analyzing evidence; strategies and tips for conducting effective witness interviews; the nuances of protecting privileged and avoiding waiver; and a discussion of what government stakeholders expect from government contractors when the results of an internal investigation result in disclosures and other forms of government engagement.

The following topics will be covered:

  • The End Game: Government and Stakeholder Expectations
  • From ESI to Evidence: Document Preservation, Collection, and Analysis 
  • The Whole Truth: Effective Witness Interviews
  • Shield or Sword: Privilege, Waiver, and Third Parties
