Rely on Fishwick & Associates as Outside Counsel for Internal Investigations

When a corporation, municipality, or religious entity needs to investigate wrong doing within the organization, for example, fraud or the mishandling of events, they may be tempted to conduct their own investigations with in-house counsel or investigators. But that may be a mistake.

objective investigation into their internal affairs. At Fishwick & Associates, our team has experienced Virginia attorneys and other professionals who have expertise in handling all aspects of internal investigations.
