Independent Investigations



Independent investigations

Appointing an independent investigator can reassure everyone involved that issues are being addressed fairly and impartially. Independent investigations can help to resolve matters before they escalate into legal proceedings.

The expertise and experience of our solicitors make them well suited to the role of investigator.  They can also provide guidance on data protection matters and privilege should they arise during an investigation.

Investigations expertise

We are qualified legal professionals acting under a code of conduct. Our investigations group has extensive experience of undertaking investigations in a number of areas including employment, education, regulatory and data protection.

Tailored investigation service

Our investigations are designed to your needs, ranging from sensitive investigations with public interest or wider implications (such as potential criminal proceedings) carried out by a partner supported by a wider team or smaller-scale investigations that can be carried out by a more junior solicitor.

Examples of some of our recent investigations include:

  • An alleged sexual assault by a senior member of staff against a junior member
  • A collective grievance raised by all eight members of a long-standing senior leadership team against a newly appointed Chief Executive Officer
  • A complaint of race harassment based on alleged incidents over an extended period of time, involving a significant number of potential witnesses and with young people being part of the factual background (with additional considerations of safeguarding and confidentiality)
