For this issue, GIR asked investigations lawyers around the world what’s coming down the track in 2015. We take a close look at some of the pivotal issues likely to affect specialists over the coming year – including prosecutions against high frequency trading firms and the double jeopardy conundrum facing French prosecutors.
We also present Part II of our Judgement Calls and Grey Areas special feature. In it, a panel of experts lead a Q&A session on issues including how one determines what’s “enough” in an internal investigation, and whether it’s sensible, or even possible, to attempt to calculate credit for cooperating with authorities.
Finally, we also have two China-focussed articles this month looking how Chinese enforcers may be using both anti-corruption and competition laws to drive down prices, and examining the dynamics of negotiating with the DoJ when investigations reach into China.
