The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations Second Edition

GIR publishes its second annual, practical guide for external and in house legal counsel, compliance officers and accounting practitioners wishing to benchmark their practice against leaders in the field. Chapters are authored by practitioners around the world and made available to GIR’s readers free to view and download.

Hard copies of the publication, which have margin cross referencing and are fully indexed, are available in our shop or as part of a GIR subscription.

New for the second edition
In the United Kingdom, some eagerly awaited English court decisions have raised significant legal privilege implications, and new corporate offences related to tax evasion have been introduced. In the United States, despite a new administration, the FCPA’s enhanced enforcement project – the Pilot Program – has been extended. We have also included substantive chapters covering extraterritoriality considerations from both the US and UK perspectives. Further, Part II now covers 16 jurisdictions, including China and Nigeria.

“The Practitioner’s Guide is a unique and valuable resource for legal and financial professionals managing cross-border investigations. Simultaneously easy-to-read and in-depth, with authoritative insight from top practitioners in the field, it should have a place in every firm’s library.”

Caroline Ciraolo, Partner, Kostelanetz & Fink, LLP and former Acting AAG of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Tax Division


"Global Investigations Review's 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.
