In the world of investigations, in-house legal and compliance professionals are the unsung heroes. At GIR, we thought it was high time to complement our usual investigations coverage with perspectives from the in-house world. In this issue, our Inside In-house special puts these practitioners front and centre. The survey contains profiles of individuals at companies all over the world.
Also in this issue, an interview with Stuart Alford QC. Fresh out of the UK’s Serious Fraud Office and into a private practice role, he sat down with GIR and discussed building the agency’s relationship with the US Department of Justice as well as his former career working for international tribunals and advising Iraqi judges on criminal law ahead of the trial of Saddam Hussein.
Elsewhere, we hear from the driving force behind South Korea’s new anti-corruption law, Kim Young-ran as a local investigation into influence peddling encircles president Park Geun-hye.
