Michael B. Himmel, Chair of the firm’s White Collar Criminal Defense practice, speaks to the FTI Journal about the importance of conducting internal investigations in a timely manner, even when faced with the challenges of remote work environments in a global pandemic. Himmel says,  “When dealing with allegations, an organization’s action or inaction can mean the difference between being granted a deferred prosecution agreement from the Department of Justice or not. … From the civil perspective, how quickly an audit committee responds to an allegation can determine whether a derivative lawsuit has merit.”
