An ombudsperson acts as an independent body to whom whistleblowers can turn. As an intermediary, the ombudsperson ensures confidentiality in communication between the whistleblower and the company.
For whistleblowers and for you as the company concerned, a lawyer as an external ombudsperson offers the advantage that he is professionally obliged to maintain confidentiality and does not have to disclose any information in the context of investigations and legal disputes.
We ensure fast, legally competent and confidential processing of reports. After processing the facts reported by the whistleblower and after consulting you, we coordinate further internal investigations by suitable departments in the company or by external specialists.
After the investigation has been completed, we will advise you on the determination of follow-up measures.
- Speed and flexibility: the number and scope of incoming information cannot be planned.
- Special expertise does not have to be held internally.
- Lawyers are professionally obliged to maintain secrecy and are not dependent on the right to refuse to testify under criminal or civil proceedings.
- Independence is clearly guaranteed and encourages whistleblowers to trust the reporting process.
