Amid increased awareness of sexual misconduct claims, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan is promoting what it says is a new practice unit that will help clients conduct internal investigations into alleged sexual misconduct in the workplace.

The group will be led by two Stroock lawyers, former U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin and former New York State Attorney General Robert Abrams. The group will also include Joel Cohen, Howard Lavin, Michele Pahmer and Elizabeth DiMichele.
