When faced with potential misconduct, businesses must take prompt action to protect themselves. Conducting your own internal investigation is one of the best ways to identify potential problems and develop a plan for addressing them before they metastasize into something far worse. Welsh & Recker helps small and multinational businesses quickly assess these issues and find a way forward.
A Lean, Targeted Approach
Internal investigations commonly suffer from “mission creep”—what began as an investigation into a specific issue slowly expands into something far larger, consuming significant resources and increasing in expense. While an investigation often reveals other unknown issues, it is vital that you don’t lose focus or go chasing mirages. With every investigation we handle, our goal is to get in and out as quickly as possible and always keep an eye on the bottom line. In addition, we provide updates to our clients in real-time so they always know what is going on and help manage the investigation along the way.
We Handle the Heavy Lifting, So You Don’t Have To
One of the challenges many businesses face is how to investigate potential misconduct without disrupting their day-to-day operations. Many businesses do not have the resources available to conduct a thorough investigation. In many instances, outside assistance is necessary to ensure you get a truly neutral and impartial perspective. In every investigation we handle, we work closely with the management team to maximize our effectiveness and ensure minimal disruption to your operations. We conduct the investigation behind the scenes while you keep your business moving forward.
Who We Work With
We have experience working with various organizational entities, allowing us to scale our services accordingly. We have worked with both small and large organizations, including the following:
- Small, family-owned businesses
- Privately held regional companies
- Fortune 500 companies
- International organizations
- Higher education institutions
Whatever the size of your organization and whatever issues you may be facing, we work with you to develop a carefully customized investigative strategy focused on identifying and resolving the problem as quickly as possible.
At Welsh & Recker, we know how costly these investigations can become. We work closely with our clients to give an up-front understanding of the costs so you know what you can expect at the outset. Along the way, we alert you to any new developments that may warrant closer attention and therefore require that we exceed our initial budget. We understand that the economics of the situation must balance a thorough investigation. Ultimately, our clients find our investigative services to be more than just a cost but an investment in their organization’s future.
