With recent high-profile cases involving workplace sexual harassment and abuse resulting in higher stakes for businesses grappling with allegations of harassment and other misconduct by employees, the program will preview best practices and potential pitfalls in conducting internal investigations of employee misconduct. This NAWL program will focus on investigations concerning harassment and theft.

Prior to joining Murphy & McGonigle, Mr. Facciponti served as a deputy head of global investigations at HSBC. Before that, he was a federal prosecutor for nearly nine years at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.

Ms. McGrail focuses her practice on counseling clients in compliance with industry regulations and internal investigations. She is also the firm’s Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer and founder of Murphy & McGonigle’s Women’s Initiative.
