“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.”

"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.
