Global Investigations Review - The law and practice of international investigations

About Us

Understanding the intricacies of cross-border investigations

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

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 of issues relating to international anti-bribery and corruption, financial services misconduct, antitrust, fraud, money laundering, tax controversy and more.

The insider view on the global and US FCPA enforcement landscape

In 2015, GIR joined forces with Just Anti-Corruption, an additional daily news service covering exclusive Foreign Corrupt Practices Act-related scoops and analysis, new and ongoing FCPA investigations, enforcement actions and investigation costs. 

Our team searches through all FCPA case dockets and SEC filings daily, appending documents to news stories covering relevant developments.
