Business and Commercial Litigation in Federal Courts is a step-by-step practice guide covering each aspect of a commercial case, from the investigation and assessment that take place at inception, through pleadings, discovery, motions, trial, appeal and enforcement of judgment. Tompkins contribution to the new edition explores the legal and practical considerations implicated in conducting internal investigations, which are launched when a company is made aware of allegations of corporate misconduct, either by government agencies, internal or external audits, or issues raised as a result of internal compliance procedures. She was assisted by fellow Cadwalader attorneys Jacob Dachs, Robert Duncan, Douglas Fischer, Nihal Patel and Lori Dillon.

She represents companies and financial institutions, as well as their officers and directors, in criminal, civil and administrative investigations. Tompkins has broad experience in crisis management, internal investigations and enforcement matters across a variety of industries, including financial services, telecommunications, pharmaceutical/healthcare and government contracting.
Tompkins also is a contributor to the premier treatise on corporate investigations, co-authoring the chapter titled “Individual Penalties and Third-Party Rights: The US Perspective” in The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations, published by Global Investigation Review earlier this year.
