Paris Bar Bulletin on Internal investigations : « Knowledge without conscience is but the ruin of the soul »

Stéphane de Navacelle, former member of Paris Bar Council, regroups Béatrice Brugués-Reix (Dentons), Thomas Baudesson (Clifford Chance Paris) and Edmond-Claude Frety (Frety Avocats) for the Paris Bar Newsletter.

 

Internal investigations : « Knowledge without conscience is but the ruin of the soul »
It is in diversity and complexity that relying on outside counsel becomes obvious, it is up to us to take up the challenge. Each investigation is unique, lawyers need to keep a jealous watch over their independence, tread carefully in fields with specific rules such as labor law and never forget they are ancillary to Justice.

Let us be, rabelaisien !
