  • Determining the scope of your document review, and interview process and analysis
  • Recent government investigations, enforcement actions and settlements, and what they reveal about right-sizing internal investigations
  • Determining how much you need to spend and how to manage the risk of spiraling costs
  • When – and when not – to investigate new or peripheral red flags discovered over the course of the internal investigation
  • How to know when to conclude the investigation
