GIR has published the third edition of its practical guide for external and in-house counsel, compliance officers and accounting practitioners. Chapters are authored by leading practitioners from around the world and made available to GIR’s readers free to view and download.
Indexed and with comprehensive cross-referencing, this two-volume hardback features tables of cases and legislation and is available in our shop or as part of a GIR subscription.
In this edition, we have added a chapter on data protection for Volume I, and we have expanded the scope and number of data protection questions in Volume II. The publication also reflects the Court of Appeal’s clarification of English law on legal privilege in the ENRC case, and the US Department of Justice’s adoption of the Corporate Enforcement Policy as part of its FCPA enhanced enforcement programme. In addition, Volume II now covers 21 jurisdictions, including Australia, Canada and Mexico.
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.
“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.
