Littleton's investigations-related work covers all areas of civil law, but we have a particular expertise in employment and regulatory investigations. Our Investigations Team have considerable experience in handling all aspects of an internal and/or regulatory investigation across a wide-range of business sectors.

Our Investigations team has real strength and depth in skills and experience which enables it to provide a bespoke investigations service, whether you require simply advice as to the procedure to be followed in the specific context of the case, assistance with interviews and evidence gathering or a complete independent investigation to be conducted from start to finish.

Our barristers are renowned for their ability to drill down into information and reach the core issues in any matters precisely, comprehensively and with speed, efficiency and the utmost discretion. Our barristers are lauded as much for their inter-personal skills and ability to lead and/or work with a team as they are their legal know-how.

Examples of investigative work undertaken in recent times (fully anonymised) include:

  • An investigation into protected disclosures made within a Magic Circle law firm
  • An investigation into trading irregularities in a brokerage house
  • An investigation into sexual harassment in an investment bank
  • An investigation into professional misconduct and personal misconduct within an NHS Trust
