GIR publishes the eighth 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.

The Guide to International Enforcement of the Securities Laws - Third Edition

Capital these days appears to know no borders, but securities laws very much do. In this mismatch lie myriad challenges for those charged with investigating whether any law has been broken

The third edition of GIR’s Guide to International Enforcement of the Securities Laws aims to make practitioners’ lives easier. Written by contributors with a wealth of experience, and edited by lawyers from Cravath, Swaine & Moore, the guide offers practical know-how for addressing the most pressing questions in securities law enforcement.

The ACi Corporate Investigator’s Handbook in association with GIR

We live in the era of the corporate investigation. But hitherto no book has set out best practice for those in-house who investigate. This handbook addresses that. Written by in-house investigators for in-house investigators and peer-reviewed by a panel of law firms it's an invaluable resource to anyone working in this field, or moving into it, and the perfect in-house companion to GIR's Practitioner's Guide to Global Investigations.

The Guide to Compliance - Second Edition

The Guide to Compliance is the first guide to tackle the compliance side of the enforcement equation in a systematic way. It combines a tour d’horizon of the rules in place around the world with specific practical advice for corporations and their counsel, and a scan of the horizon in parts two and three. It is part of the GIR technical library that has grown out of the Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations and now includes guides to, among other things, monitorships and sanctions.

The Guide to Sanctions - Fourth Edition

We live in a new era for sanctions. More states are using them, in more creative (and often unilateral) ways.

This, alas, creates complication for the rest of us. Hitherto no book has addressed the complexities that businesses and their advisers must address by dint of this proliferation in a structured way. GIR’s The Guide to Sanctions fills that gap. Written by contributors from the small but expanding field of sanctions enforcement, it dissects the topic in a practical fashion, from every stakeholder’s perspective, and is an invaluable resource.

The Guide to Anti-Money Laundering - First Edition

The Guide to Anti-Money Laundering is one of the first volumes to tackle both sides of the money laundering conundrum simultaneously. It covers enforcement trends around the world in Part I and compliance trends in Part II – with specific practical advice for corporations and their counsel throughout. It is an addition to GIR’s technical library – made famous by The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations – that now includes guides to, among other things, monitorships, compliance and sanctions.

The Guide to Cyber Investigations - Third Edition

Data breaches and similar incidents pose a unique challenge – those targeted must both respond and investigate simultaneously. It is an art that is impossible without preparation.

Businesses wishing to prepare will find this volume, The Guide to Cyber Investigations, invaluable. It identifies every issue to consider when creating a response template and implementing it, giving both the law and plenty of practical and tactical advice.

Written by leading contributors, all with broad experience of serious data incidents, it is an indispensable desktop guide and a worthy companion to GIR’s larger volume on cross-border investigations, The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations.

The Guide to Monitorships - Third 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 used 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 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.
