Managing Internal Investigations in a post COVID-19 world - Caroline Day and Alun Milford write for Legal 500 Crisis Management Special

20 July 2020

Caroline Day and Alun Milford, Partners in our Criminal Litigation team have written for the Legal 500 Crisis Management Special giving their thoughts on managing internal investigations in a post COVID-19 world.
 

Whilst ways of working may change, the legal and regulatory environment in which businesses operate will not and authorities' long term priorities have not changed. Caroline and Alun ask the question what this will mean for internal investigations and look at the three main areas of documents, witnesses and law enforcement.
