Regulatory: The 12 do’s and don’ts of corporate internal investigations—Part 2

Search for information in the right places, and then be sure to preserve that evidence

This is the second in a series of six articles on the “Dozen Do’s and Don’ts of Corporate Internal Investigations.” Read the first installment here.

In our first article we discussed the importance of developing internal processes that motivate employees to report compliance concerns (“Do listen for the whistle”) and the importance of developing a process that ensures an efficient and thorough investigation of alleged malfeasance (“Don’t shoot before you aim.”) This segment addresses two more keys to an effective internal investigation: the importance of searching the right places for potentially relevant information (“Do dig where the treasure is buried”) and ensuring that evidence is properly preserved (“Don’t destroy documents”).
