This guide reveals what investigations lawyers think about the due process policies and procedures of 40 government enforcement agencies around the world, including anti-corruption and fraud agencies such as the UK’s Serious Fraud Office, competition enforcers like the US Department of Justice’s antitrust division and financial regulators such as the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission. The 2016 guide features five new agencies, including China’s State Administration for Industry and Commerce, Norway’s Økokrim and India’s Central Bureau of Investigations.
GIR asked hundreds of investigations specialists around the world to tell us what they think of the investigative and prosecutorial processes of the government agencies they deal with each week. Based on these responses, feedback from the agencies themselves, and GIR reporting on the agencies in the past year, each organisation is profiled and assigned a grade from A+ to C-.
