This new volume charts the biggest successes – and failures – of legal risk management, governance and compliance at global brands over the past two decades; the cases that have led to our understanding, and myriad national and international regulations, today.

Succeeding bestseller Legal Risk Management, Governance and Compliance: A Guide to Best Practice, this case-study companion provides the next level of critical analysis and legal commentary. Leading experts analyse real-life cases and make recommendations based on lessons learned, offering solutions that will be of use to all those directly involved in, or concerned with, the management of legal risk in the commercial, government or third sector. Key cases under the microscope include the Libor scandal, recent manipulation of the foreign exchange market and controversy over Qatar’s World Cup bid investigation report. Checklists and diagrams are included to consolidate core issues and provide a readily accessible view of corporate group structures and associated timelines.

Legal Risk Management, Governance and Compliance: Interdisciplinary Case Studies from Leading Experts will support practitioners and executives in their professional development while directly demonstrating, case by case, the difference that an effective risk management strategy makes towards organisational goals.
