Evidence, Civil Litigation and Civil ActionsDefendants in high-stakes fraud cases will generally threaten civil claims against the company or the investigators. This is done to use intimidation in an effort to stop the investigation, or to create side issues at trial. Investigators who engage in unprofessional, malicious or excessive acts could subject themselves to damages. Knowing what evidence is necessary for a conflict of interest investigation and how that evidence and its collection method can be used against you is crucial.
