Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC Australia

Thomson Geer Partners, Katie Binstock and Bridget Nunn, will present a practical guide on conducting internal investigations into incidents and issues occurring in their company/workplace. The session will consider legal professional privilege, procedural fairness, whistleblower protections and other key issues that may arise in the context of an internal investigation.

This session is the perfect opportunity to engage and network with other in-house counsels whilst leaving with a practical understanding of how to manage internal investigations.
