Corporations, non-profit organizations, and public institutions, large and small, encounter scrutiny from federal, state, and local government agencies, which are less and less tolerant of regulatory mistakes. In addition, businesses face increased litigation initiated by private parties. Businesses should conduct their own internal investigations to quickly and efficiently evaluate each factual situation and determine the most effective response.
