Corporate executives and managers know that speed, efficiency and an ability to get people to “open up” are key ingredients in an effective investigation, whether internal, or one initiated by a regulatory agency. Both for-profit and non-profit organizations often rely on Shackelford’s prompt, comprehensive and efficient investigations involving sensitive issues such as employment practices, privacy, cyber-fraud, employment practices, corruption, fraud, finances, ethics, whistleblowers or other corporate governance concerns.
Thanks to years of experience with all kinds, types and sizes of businesses, we're able to get to the facts of the matter quickly, and to talk with key individuals about investigation results and what corrective or other actions may be required.
Shackelford’s corporate investigation attorneys are focused on getting ahead of problems before they escalate and before publicity ensues. We handle a wide range of issues, such as:
- Management investigations and board representation;
- Allegations of employment discrimination, harassment and retaliation;
- Wage and hour audits;
- Investigations into accounting irregularities;
- Investigations into alleged securities violations;
- Employee misconduct; and
- Whistleblower and Qui Tam matters.
We've also dealt in detail with the complex regulations and requirements of FINRA, OSHA, FLSA and Sarbanes-Oxley, as well as Federal and Texas agencies, including the EEOC, the Texas Workforce Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Department of Defense, the Office of the Attorney General, the SEC and the Texas State Securities Board.
