"Global Investigations Review’s The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations is the most comprehensive publication currently on the market in relation to cross-border, multifaceted corporate investigations. It does what it says on the tin – ‘How does one conduct such an investigation? And what does one have in mind at various times?’ – and it does it rather well." Tapan Debnath, Legal Counsel, Nokia
GIR publishes its first guide to the nuts and bolts of cross-border investigation
As cross-border cooperation between regulators and investigators rises to meet the demands of an increasingly competitive global market place, corporations and executives doing business internationally face an ever growing risk of encountering a global investigation.
The Practitioner's Guide to Global Investigations is a unique publication gathering for the first time practical advice and guidance from leading practitioners from around the world who routinely meet the challenges presented by cross-border investigations.
This publication is the essential practical guide for external and in house legal counsel, compliance officers and accounting practitioners who wish to benchmark their own practice against that of leaders in the field. The insights contained within the publication are applicable to global investigations in any sector and in particular to those with a high risk of bribery, corruption and fraud.
The book is divided into two parts. With a specific focus on US and UK practice and procedure, Part 1 of the guide tracks the development of a serious allegation (whether internal or external) through its stages of development, while considering the opportunities for resolution and the key risks and challenges as matters progress. It includes expert insight into fact gathering, document preservation and collection, witness interviews, and the complexities of cross-border privilege issues, in addition to successful strategy in resolving cross-border probes and managing corporate reputation. Part 2 of the guide features detailed comparable surveys of the relevant law and practice in 12 jurisdictions..
