Internal Investigations and Corporate Compliance Programs

          Given Mr. Palmer’s experience as a federal prosecutor in the Economic Crimes Division and his work in white-collar criminal defense, he is ideally suited to conduct internal investigations for public and private companies, in the U.S. and abroad. During his tenure with the U.S. Department of Justice, including his service as Deputy Chief of the Economic Crimes Division, he conducted and supervised hundreds of investigations involving complex regulatory areas, such as securities and tax law violations. Accordingly, he obtained valuable experience gathering, analyzing, and organizing evidence. He also gained important insight into the functioning of federal and state law enforcement agencies and is experienced in working with such agencies.

          Mr. Palmer employs those skills when conducting internal investigations. He understands the importance of proceeding carefully when gathering evidence and conducting interviews, and often works with forensic accountants to obtain and analyze voluminous financial records. He also has experience preparing detailed investigative reports, meeting with management to explain the status and outcome of the investigation, and interfacing with federal agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the U.S. Department of Justice, to resolve the issues under investigation.         

          He has conducted numerous internal investigations for public companies and has provided related compliance training in the U.S. and abroad. Given his fluency in Spanish and background as a federal prosecutor, he has assisted U.S. public companies in conducing internal investigations of their subsidiaries or operating divisions in Latin America. What’s more, as a boutique firm, he can provide this service at a fraction of the cost of any big law firm.
