Improving Internal Investigations with Steve Spiegelhalter

Steve Spiegelhalter is the North American Investigations Practice Leader and Managing Director at Alvarez & Marsal. As a former federal prosecutor with the US Department of Justice’s Criminal Division, Fraud Section, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Unit, Steve has intimate experience in investigating complex criminal and civil affairs and implementing compliance programs. He joins Vince Walden to discuss the future of conducting internal investigations.


Steve talks about the improvements GCs and CCOs have made in internal investigations over the last five years. They have evolved their in-house skills and resources. Additionally, they have gotten better at interacting with external counsel to solve matters more efficiently.


COVID-19 has highlighted that foreign corrupt practices and corruption are long-term risks that are becoming more prominent. There has been a rise in fraud issues since the workplace has shifted to remote. Behaviors of malpractice that would have gone unnoticed are now being laid bare.
