Global Investigations Review - The law and practice of international investigations

Want to write for GIR? Here's how:

GIR is the hub of the international investigations community.

GIR Thought Leadership is an integral part of that. We partner with leading lawyers, forensics advisers, in-house counsel and enforcement agencies to provide more in-depth perspectives on the topics that we cover in our news, surveys and events.

Thought Leadership is organised in three series:

Annual regional reviewslooking at hot topics and trends across Europe, The Middle East and Africa Region, the Americas and the Asia Pacific Region.

Know-hows on the practical challenges of investigations, e.g. maximising privilege protection or financial services misconduct. These are questionnaire-based.

The Practitioner's Guide to Global Investigations, our big book about how to conduct a cross-border investigation.

All of GIR's Thought Leadership is free-to-view (no subscription is required) which helps it get the maximum exposure.  The content is also promoted via GIR's daily news briefing and alongside related news content. It's also shared with delegates at our GIR Lives and other conferences worldwide. Finally, we help contributors share the content with their own professional peers, with chapter PDFs and hard copies where relevant.

Across GIR Thought Leadership we work with over 300 authors at 100+ firms worldwide, selected for their experience in cross-border investigations.

If this sounds like a good fit and you would like to become one of our authors, please fill out the form below and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible. There is, as a rule, an annual stipend.

General process notes on how to become a contributor:

Our publishers will work with you on selecting the topic and provide you with clear guidelines on how to write the chapter.

The format and scope of articles will depend on the topic and publication: regional reviews, for example, have prose articles, whereas know-how chapters are based on a bespoke questionnaire.

Each chapter is accompanied by the contact details of the contributing firm and authors to encourage dialogue between authors, co-authors and readers.

Once the agreement is in place, we hand over to our dedicated Production team, which handles the entire publishing process to make sure our resources are high-quality and on time. They provide guidelines for your chapter, answer queries during drafting, and co-ordinate submission, sub-editing and approval. Contributors always have sign-off over what is published.
