BERWYN, Pa., Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The NCHERM Group, LLC is pleased to announce the appointment of Anna Oppenheim, Esq. as an Associate Attorney, effective October 24th, 2016.
The NCHERM Group President & CEO Brett Sokolow stated, "Anna is our fourth new hire this year, continuing a positive growth trend for the NCHERM Group, and demonstrating our continued commitment to excellent client services. As our investigation division, NCHERM-i, has grown this year, it created an opportunity to bring on a new attorney to help oversee our fifteen investigators. Anna is a perfect fit for that role, given her background and deep civil rights investigations experience. Further, Anna will be a fantastic asset to our Final Eyes clients, given the 40% expansion in that program this year. Final Eyes provides consultation on civil rights investigations and reviews of final investigation reports for over 120 colleges and universities, often requiring reviews of 20-30 investigation reports each month."
Oppenheim added, "I am delighted to join The NCHERM Group and work with the dedicated team to further develop their already extensive investigative, consulting, educational, and legal services. It is a privilege to be part of such a respected firm that prides itself on top quality service and commitment to risk management in education."
Until her employment with The NCHERM Group, Anna worked as an Attorney Investigator with the Office of the Inspector General for the City of Philadelphia. She was a principal investigator of claims of employee misconduct, discrimination, and compliance issues. She formulated investigative strategies and wrote policy recommendations and investigative reports. Oppenheim conducted interviews of targets, informants, and witnesses, audited personnel and financial records, and collaborated with municipal, state, and federal agencies on civil and criminal investigations. In addition, she presented trainings to employees on issues such as contract compliance, policy changes, and ethical regulations.
Prior to working at the Office of Inspector General, Oppenheim was an Associate Attorney at Console Law Offices in Philadelphia, where she represented plaintiffs pursuing employment discrimination and contract claims in state and federal agency proceedings, mediations, and litigation.
