U.S. Employment Investigations

Attorneys in Cohen & Gresser’s Employment Investigations group regularly advise public and private companies, not-for-profits, boards of directors, special committees, audit committees, and individuals in connection with allegations of workplace misconduct. Our attorneys have conducted internal investigations involving issues such as EEO, diversity and inclusion, sexual harassment, discrimination, pay equity, fraud, embezzlement, accounting irregularities, whistleblowing and retaliation claims, and other claims of misconduct.

Clients draw on our multidisciplinary bench of experienced and ranked attorneys across key jurisdictions for discreet and thorough representation. We are well-versed in all aspects of an investigation, including interviewing employees at all levels, recommending appropriate disciplinary actions, and establishing any necessary policy, operational, and compliance changes. Our success is measured by creating and implementing applicable actions that minimize future liability for our clients.

International law firm Cohen & Gresser has once again been ranked by Global Investigations Review (GIR) as one of the leading law firms in the world for cross-border investigations. The GIR 100, an independent guide to the world’s best firms for investigations, recognized C&G for its major victories on behalf of high-profile individuals and companies and its strong network of prominent lawyers in key jurisdictions around the globe.

GIR recognized the U.S. team’s deep bench of “former attorneys from New York’s famed prosecution offices,” and its “impressive work for corporates” in recent years. The guide also highlights the firm’s international reach, calling attention to C&G’s “strong practice in France” and the rapid development of its London office, which it describes as having “grown from strength to strength” with the recent addition of Richard Kovalevsky QC.

GIR also shortlisted C&G for the Most Important Court Case of the Year award for the significant victory on behalf of KBR Inc. at the UK Supreme Court. It is the second time in four years that C&G has been named a finalist for this award. The firm was previously recognized in 2018 for securing the dismissal with prejudice of a high-profile FCPA case brought by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The GIR 100 is based on submissions from law firms and extensive research, and honors the top 100 firms around the world that handle sophisticated government-led, internal, and cross-border investigations.
