Managing Risk: Best Practice Investigations in the UAE

Internal or regulatory-driven investigations into criminal or other improper conduct by individuals or their companies can raise serious issues, having long-lasting impact on risk management, reputation and costs. Delivering a thorough, carefully planned and credible investigation will minimise disruption to your business, help you maintain control of the process and ultimately could help mitigate the risk of corporate criminal, civil or regulatory liability and the resultant sanctions.

Further to Baker McKenzie Habib Al Mulla’s recent workshops in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah focusing on conducting investigations in the workplace, please find below some information which we hope you will find useful:
