It's a rare day when US newspaper headlines do not announce criminal or regulatory investigations or prosecutions of major financial institutions and other corporations. Foreign corruption. Financial fraud. Tax evasion. Price fixing. Environmental crimes. Export controls and other trade sanctions.
Already complex interlocking legal and regulatory regimes have become even more labyrinthine with the passage of new laws in the wake of the recent economic crisis, and the compliance burdens imposed on US and non-US corporations alike have grown ever more onerous.
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 a trial a realistic option? And how does a corporation manage the delicate interactions with the employees whose conduct is at issue?
The International Investigations Review answers these questions and many more and will act as an indispensable guide when your client faces criminal or regulatory scrutiny in a country other than your own. With coverage of 15 of the most significant jurisdictions worldwide, it highlights the major issues and critical characteristics of a given country's legal system and will serve as an invaluable aid in engaging, advising and directing local counsel in that jurisdiction.
