This eighth edition presents the views and observations of leading anti-corruption practitioners in jurisdictions spanning the globe. Given the numerous recent changes in domestic legal regimes, and the uncertainty in international relations, this book and the wealth of learning that it contains from around the world, will help guide practitioners and their clients when navigating the perils of corruption in foreign and transnational business, and in related internal and government investigations.
Under what circumstances can the corporate entity itself be charged with a crime? What are the possible penalties? Under what circumstances should a corporation voluntarily self-report potential misconduct on the part of its employees? Is it a realistic option for a corporation to defend itself at trial against a government agency? And how does a corporation manage the delicate interactions with employees whose conduct is at issue? The International Investigations Review answers these questions and many more and will serve as an indispensable guide when your clients face criminal or regulatory scrutiny in a country other than your own.
