Global Investigations Review is the hub of the international investigations community, bringing practitioners together through our journalists’ daily news, GIR Insight resources and GIR Live events. GIR gives our subscribers – mainly in-house counsel, private practice lawyers, government enforcement agencies and forensics advisers - the most readable explanation of all the cross-border developments that matter, allowing them they to stay (even more) on top of their game. Over the past 12 months, our reporters have conducted roundtables on the cost of investigations and on the future of investigations firms, interviewed government enforcers, refreshed our surveys showcasing Women in Investigations and the top firms in investigations (the GIR100) and – after a successful court decision – obliged the US Department of Justice to release the names of unsuccessful candidates for FCPA monitorships.
The front-line perspective into managing the challenges of investigations, provided by experts across the EMEA. Content covers anti-corruption regulation, enforcement activity, conducting internal investigations and managing government-led investigations.
GIR Know-how is published free-to-view to give practitioners quick answers to important questions in cross-border investigations and compare law and practice across jurisdictions. If your country isn’t featured or you have feedback to share, please email Edward Perugia to find out more.

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. For this second edition we have revised the chapters to reflect recent developments. 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. Chapters are authored by practitioners around the world and made available to GIR’s readers free to view and download. If you are interested in a hard copy of the publication, it is available in our shop, or as part of a GIR subscription.
"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."
