Nukk-Freeman & Cerra PC in Chatham launched a dedicated investigation practice group, the firm announced Sept. 13.
The investigation practice group’s attorney-investigators conduct privileged and non-privileged investigations, handling every aspect of the process with skill and discretion, the announcement said. Additionally, the group’s attorney-counselors help clients build their internal investigation policies and processes and advise companies faced with internal complaints on best practices.
The group also has a training arm with attorney-trainers who design and deliver interactive workshops to clients’ legal, human resources and investigation teams with step-by-step guidance on conducting prompt and thorough investigations.
“Since NFC’s inception in 2006, our experienced team has been conducting independent and effective investigations, including high-level, sensitive investigations involving complaints of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, bullying, whistleblowing, financial misconduct and code of conduct and policy violations. We have also counseled clients dealing with the landmines inherent in workplace investigations, assisted them in developing comprehensive investigation policies and processes, and trained their team members on how to conduct compliant and effective investigations,” said NFC Partner Robin Rome in a prepared statement.
Rome said the firm has now harnessed this experience by creating the group, comprised of attorneys at all levels and paralegals. Rome leads the group with NFC Partner Phillip Lipari, both of whom regularly conduct investigations and present on investigation-related topics for various organizations.
