Understanding the intricacies of cross-border investigations

Global Investigations Review (GIR) is a unique service analysing the law and practice of international investigations.

The service is read by a global audience of investigations professionals including private practice lawyers, corporate counsel, in-house investigators, forensic experts, risk advisory consultants and government agencies.

With an established network of contacts, our dedicated team of journalists travel worldwide to provide you with everything an investigations professional needs to stay informed. Our service covers daily news on global enforcement actions and legal developments, alongside exclusive data, surveys and practical guides.

Coverage extends to government agency investigations and internal corporate investigations into matters including international anti-bribery and corruption, financial services misconduct, antitrust, fraud, money laundering, sanctions violations, tax avoidance and evasion, and more. Where relevant, GIR includes pdfs of original court documents, SEC filings, and other primary documents in news stories.
