In this issue of GIR, we publish the roundups of two of our conferences: London and San Francisco.
In April, a debate that took place at GIR Live London in which leading London practitioners and Alun Milford, the SFO’s general counsel, asked whether DPAs are now the new normal in the UK hot on the heels of the UK’s surprise general election vote.
Similarly in San Francisco, much talk centred around the future direction of US Department of Justice under the Trump administration as well as the still-raging Petrobras scandal in Brazil.
Elsewhere in the magazine, we feature a piece about whether the UK has got it right over whistleblowing in the wake of a review by the Banking Standards Board which found that a third of employees in the banking sector would think twice before blowing the whistle.
