Shareholder Ron Diegel recently traveled to Ojai, California to present at the 2023 ALFA International Hospitality and Retail Seminar. Diegel’s talk, “Police Academy – A Discussion on the Best Practices to Defend, Survive and Advance when Crime Comes to Clients”, highlighted a few key steps to take when handling a crime.
According to Diegel, once a crime occurs, it is extremely important for clients to conduct an early and thorough investigation of all facts and circumstances as soon as possible. Secondly, clients need to consider retaining counsel to direct the investigation in order to utilize work product and attorney client privilege protections. Lastly, security experts are essential to evaluate and assess foreseeability of the crime and security measures in place.
