    Internal Investigations: When Do You Need (or Not Need) Outside Counsel, and Other Key Decisions at the Outset of an Internal Investigation?

    Michael W. Stockham, Thompson & Knight LLP - Dallas, TX
    John C. Wander, Vinson & Elkins LLP - Dallas, TX

    The start of any internal investigation has several key decisions, many of which can impact the integrity of the investigation and the ability for third-parties to rely on the findings. Choosing when to hire outside counsel is just one such key decision. This panel will cover that issue and others that are fundamental to starting an internal investigation on the right footing.
