Global Investigations Review - The law and practice of international investigations



The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations

To read the updated edition of The Practitioner's Guide to Global Investigations, click here.

The only guide that covers what to do at every stage during the lifecycle of a corporate investigation – from discovery of the initial problem to conclusion and beyond.

Part 1 
Using US and UK practice and procedure to illustrate, Part 1 of the guide tracks the development of a serious allegation (whether originating inside or outside a company) as it develops – looking at the key risks that arise and the challenges it poses, along with the opportunities that may exist for its resolution. It offers expert insight into fact-gathering (including document preservation and collection, and witness interviews); structuring the investigation (the complexities of cross-border privilege issues); and strategizing effectively to resolve cross-border probes and manage corporate reputation.

Part 2 
Features provide detailed comparable surveys of the relevant law and practice in 12 jurisdictions that build on many of the vital issues pinpointed in Part 1.
