The firm relies on our in-house investigator to support the trial teams in both civil and criminal cases, and his 30 years of experience in law enforcement and corporate security is a real asset for our clients. This work often involves probing into allegations of various types of corporate or employee misconduct, the actions of corporate directors and executives, and compliance with state and federal regulations.
