Conducting internal investigations is an inevitable part of running a professional organisation. Public and private companies alike are examined and investigated domestically by the Thai government for wrongdoing on a daily basis. Foreign companies with subsidiaries in Thailand must be aware of US and UK laws and regulations and how their local actions may jeopardize their businesses.
Foreign Corrupt Practices and Anti-Bribery legislation are particularly important topics for parent companies, as the actions of a subsidiary may have a direct impact on the sustainability of their global business.
When a company is confronted with evidence or allegations of potential wrongdoing, it is essential to fully understands all the facts. If the facts evidence a violation of policy—or worse, of law—the company should respond promptly with appropriate discipline, remediation, and (in certain cases) perhaps even discussions with the government. Under the right circumstances, conducting an effective corporate internal investigation protected by the attorney-client privilege can benefit the company in dealing with the issues and find a solution.
Silk Legal’s team of forensic investigators are able to address these issues and provide decision makers the facts so they can make informed decisions.
