Global Investigations Review - The law and practice of international investigations



The European, Middle Eastern and African Investigations Review 2018

Complementing our journalists’ original work, this annual report gives readers the ‘front-line’ view from selected practitioners. Each author is invited to reflect on the complex issues that they – and their in-house clients – face in internal and government investigations every day. 

Some have focused on enforcement areas such as securities, financial services, AML and anticorruption whereas others have taken a thematic approach (eg, how the Rolls-Royce case or GDPR are affecting cross-border investigations). We are also indebted to our jurisdictional rapporteurs across Europe and Africa for giving us their perspective on the key trends locally. For the first time we have also included content giving the enforcement perspective: this section will grow over future editions. All authors are leaders in their field and we are grateful to them all for their time and energy: we encourage readers and co-authors to share feedback and comments.

“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.
