MONITORING AND COURT APPOINTMENTS

Monitors and Independent Counsel can help your firm demonstrate to prosecutors and regulators that the information you are providing has been gathered in the most independent way possible. Tendy Law will assist you in answering questions, subpoena response, compliance with relevant laws and regulations, and prevent or uncover unethical or illegal conduct. An independent monitor can make the difference in regaining regulators and law enforcement trust both during and after a troubling occurrence.
