How do you negotiate with officials who have a nuclear option at their disposal – debarment or something similar? What do you do when officials from different jurisdictions make diametrically opposed – or starkly incompatible – demands? Is it possible to stop becoming the centre of a feeding frenzy featuring multiple agencies?

In “Judgement Calls and Grey Areas: the Art of the Impossible” we present in full the discussion that took place at GIR Live New York: in it, five leading investigations specialists grapple with the thorniest issued faced by lawyers in this field today.

Elsewhere in this issue, investigators and prosecutors from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) tell GIR that owing to an inflexible case review system, the SEC is failing to drop weak cases – even when the facts suggest cases are close to unwinnable.
