Internal Investigations

Ashcroft approaches internal investigations with sensitivity to business operations. While we seek to address immediately the greatest risks and craft a broader plan to remedy the situation, we also work to mitigate the risk of further costly investigations, fines, or prosecution. Our efforts are structured in such a way as to minimize as much as possible the impact on the ongoing daily operations of the company. We have a record of delivering expeditious and meaningful resolution to corporate issues that have, or may, come under the intense microscope of law enforcement and regulatory agencies. We assist companies to come into full compliance with applicable laws and regulations and, in so doing, help companies infuse integrity, responsibility and ethics into their culture and operations.The Firm’s professionals have decades of experience directing enforcement and regulatory actions from the Department of Justice, working in coordination with hundreds of other international, federal, state and local enforcement and regulatory agencies. We are equally comfortable handling discrete investigations, leading broad-based efforts, or operating on a multi-disciplinary team as a trusted advisor to our client in response to a serious enforcement or regulatory action. Our team includes former United States Attorneys, former FBI agents, former Assistant United States Attorneys, and former members of the Federal Inspector General community. Our team of professionals has regularly lead multi-disciplinary efforts to respond to potential enforcement actions involving our clients. Such clients have included Fortune 500 companies, world-leading multi-national corporations, and international financial institutions.

The Firm’s reputation for operating with integrity and producing exceptional results has led to successful resolutions on behalf of our clients and being approved to serve as an independent monitor for the DOJ; liaison with the US Department of Treasury as an Independent Review Consultant for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and Office of Thrift Supervision; and an Independent Ethics Review Consultant for other U.S. and multi-lateral international organizations, to name a few.
