Prepare court-related documents (such as informations, summonses, first appearance packages, full disclosure packages, agreed statement of facts and joint submissions) that will be subject to judicial scrutiny. Assist in the prosecutorial process by providing evidence in court, coordinating court proceedings, scheduling witnesses, pre-trial interviews and management of witness costs.
8. On a rotational basis and as assigned, conduct internal/sensitive investigations within established parameters relating to corporate non-compliance and other matters.
