Evelyn Sheehan Discusses the Challenges of Conducting Internal Investigations
June 5, 2019
Kobre & Kim’s Evelyn Sheehan will join the panel “Challenging Issues in Internal Investigations” at Latin Lawyer’s GIR Live Anti-Corruption & Investigations symposium on June 6th in Mexico City to address the key components of selecting an effective and reliable counsel to carry out compliance measures.
Ms. Sheehan will be discussing underlying concerns that both internal and stakeholders may have when facing an investigation into possible misconduct: In doing so, she will draw on her experience prosecuting cases related to internal corruption and advising on government enforcement actions. She will focus on the importance of using independent law firms to mitigate bias and eliminate the possibility of “self-preservation” among regular counsel, especially in cases where findings must be shared with law enforcement agencies.
