Internal Investigations: Confidential Consultation at 602-254-8088
Our investigations often parallel criminal investigations by federal agents. We commonly get involved because grand jury subpoenas have been issued or an employee has initiated a false claim or a qui tam action. Mr. Mathew works closely with in-house lawyers or outside corporate counsel to identify the specific focus of the internal investigation.
After conducting interviews with executives and employees and analyzing financial documents and transactions, he reports his findings to management or the board of directors. On the client's behalf, or in conjunction with lead counsel, Mr. Mathew interfaces with government authorities. If that exchange is not successful in closing the federal investigation, Mathew & Associates is fully prepared to go to trial on ensuing indictments. We can prepare pre-trial motions and represent the corporation in a jury trial and any appeals.
Ivan Mathew has extensive experience in criminal defense of fraud and financial crimes; so he knows precisely what to look for in internal investigations. He is also a former Assistant U.S. attorney and Special U.S. attorney with substantial federal court experience. Because of his experience as a former prosecutor, Mr. Mathew can often ascertain what the government's concerns are in their external investigation.
Mr. Mathew is also a Certified Public Accountant and holds an LL.M. in International Business Law from the London School of Economics, one of the foremost learning institutions in the world. This background enables him to nimbly dissect complex transactions, financial statements, and read between the lines to trace suspicious activity to its source.
If you suspect impropriety or if federal authorities have already started asking questions, contact Mathew & Associates immediately. We have at our disposal a rapid response team of former federal agents (ex-FBI and Secret Service) to aid in the discovery and assessment of liability. Call our Phoenix office at 602-254-8088 to arrange a discreet consultation.
