Overview

Whistleblowers are protected by state and federal statutes and can be an investigation’s greatest resource. But what should counsel or in-house lawyers do when a whistleblower is suspected to be engaged in wrongdoing? Nicholas Oliva, Chief Legal Officer of Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings America, discusses how to manage a whistleblower with Orrick partners Amy Walsh and Matthew Moses – including communication best practices, the importance of strong anti-retaliation policies, and how to handle the discovery of potential misconduct by the whistleblower during the course of the investigation.
