The Americas Investigations Review 2021 contains insight and thought leadership from 28 pre-eminent practitioners from the region. Across 11 chapters, spanning around 160 pages, they provide an invaluable retrospective and primer.

Together, these writers capture and interpret the most substantial recent international investigations developments of the past year, with footnotes and relevant statistics. Other articles provide valuable background so that you can get up to speed quickly on the essentials of a particular topic.

This edition covers Brazil, Mexico and the United States – each from multiple perspectives, and has overviews on the Department of Justice’s use of tools that are not the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act; on evidence gathering; and on how to ensure that history does not repeat – the art of learning the right lessons as an investigation winds down.
