People and Culture Investigations

Our clients trust us with their most high-profile, complex and sensitive people and culture-related investigations, often where regulators are involved. We regularly advise on HR investigations (e.g. disciplinary and grievance processes), and undertake independent investigations into workplace culture (including allegations of bullying, discrimination and harassment), as well as diversity, equity and inclusion matters. Our significant experience includes advising on remuneration-related issues that arise before, during and following the outcome of an investigation (e.g. obligations to freeze or adjust variable pay), particularly in the context of regulators’ evolving expectations in this area.
