CASE STUDY

Internal Investigation Review for Pharmaceutical Company

When a pharmaceutical company needed assistance reviewing information in connection with an internal investigation of potential compliance issues, it contacted Encompass to conduct the review. The Encompass team helped the client develop a strategy for conducting its internal investigation review, including creating search terms and queries to focus the investigation. With over 1 million documents collected from 132 custodians, the Encompass team, in consultation with the client, developed an approach to strategically cull documents, with Encompass ultimately reviewing just over 50,000 documents. Upon the client's request, the Encompass team also prepared an investigation summary memorandum detailing and analyzing responsive documents to assist with investigation follow-up.
