Your organizational client has just received an internal complaint – perhaps allegations of a hostile work environment have surfaced, or an employee has come to the general counsel complaining that the company is engaged in illegal activities. The client approaches you, outside counsel, for advice on how best to conduct the internal investigation. Who should conduct the investigation? How should it proceed? Can the investigation itself be protected by the attorney-client privilege in the event of ensuing litigation? If so, how? Understanding the best way to counsel your client when faced with these questions has become increasingly challenging with recent current events and court decisions. Does the reason for the investigation make a difference? Is the privilege more likely to protect the communications if in-house counsel conducts the investigation? Is the involvement of outside counsel a critical factor?
