Legal Investigations

Sometimes, both companies, institutions, etc., may need to conduct investigations into certain matters. It can be advantageous to have an independent party conduct such investigations.

Eli has experience in conducting both internal and external legal investigations.

If you need an external and independent legal investigation into any matter, please feel free to contact attorney Eli Thorsteinsson.

Whistleblower system

In collaboration with an external provider, the law firm can offer a secure and seamless solution where the whistleblower system is tailored to your workplace.

The system will be administrated by the law firm under a fixed agreement.

All messages through the system will be handled confidentially by Eli Thorsteinsson Attorney-at-Law on behalf of the company.

 

Contact Eli Thorsteinsson to inquire and arrange further details.

Outsourcing or service agreement regarding legal work

Sometimes, it may be a more flexible solution to enter into a fixed agreement with an external lawyer for the legal work at the workplace, instead of hiring a person, for example.

For instance, it is possible to enter into a service agreement for this purpose, where the law firm takes over the legal tasks at the company according to a clear agreement. This way, you will have your own internal legal department.

Contact Eli Thorsteinsson for further details.
