Ask the Experts: Board Oversight of Internal Investigations

Cooley partner John Hemann is a featured speaker.
  • When boards learn of alleged improprieties within a company, whether it is a possible fraud, a rumored scandal or some other violation of laws or code of ethics, they may decide to order an internal investigation. This panel discussion will guide boards in determining when an investigation is necessary, who should conduct it, how it should be conducted and exactly what the board's role will be during the process. Subtopics include balancing transparency and privacy and recent "me too" and "bias" legal trends.
