GIR's Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations, 2nd Edition
There’s never been a greater likelihood a company and its key people will become embroiled in a cross-border investigation. But emerging unscarred is a challenge. Local laws and procedures on corporate offences differ extensively – and can be contradictory. To extricate oneself with minimal cost requires a nuanced ability to blend understanding of the local law with the wider dimension and, in particular, to understand where the different countries showing an interest will differ in approach, expectations or conclusions.
Against this backdrop, GIR has published the second edition of The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations.
Exclusive to the hardback edition: margin cross-referencing and fully indexed
Using US and UK practice and procedure, Part I tracks the development of a serious allegation (whether originating inside or outside a company) – looking at the key risks that arise and the challenges it poses, along with the opportunities for its resolution. It offers expert insight into fact-gathering (including document preservation and collection, witness interviews); structuring the investigation (the complexities of cross-border privilege issues); and strategising effectively to resolve cross-border probes and manage corporate reputation.
Part II features detailed comparable surveys of the relevant law and practice in jurisdictions that build on many of the vital issues pinpointed in Part I.
All chapters are by leading names in the field and will be updated annually
"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 (on the first edition of The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations)
