Due diligence reports are customized to fit client needs and on occasion include collaboration with others beyond our noted expertise to assure full compliance with laws that affect investigations.
Human Resources Initiatives
We work with human resources professionals and employment lawyers on employment terms, departures, career transition services, and related matters, as needed. We also collaborate with executives on negotiation strategies for contracts that may impact their lives, far beyond their workplace.
