The Guide to Monitorships - First Edition

Since WorldCom, the United States Department of Justice and other agencies have imposed more than 80 monitorships on a variety of companies, including some of the world’s best-known names. The terms of these monitorships and the industries in which they have been employed vary widely. Yet many of the legal issues they raise are the same. To date, there has been no in-depth work that examines them. GIR’s The Guide to Monitorships fills that gap. Written by contributors with first-hand experience of working with or as monitors, it discusses all the key issues, from every stakeholder’s perspective, making it an invaluable resource for anyone interested in understanding or practising in the area.

In addition, Volume II now covers 21 jurisdictions, including Australia, Canada and Mexico.


"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."
