Overview

Corporate Internal Investigations: An International Guide addresses the way in which a company conducts an effective internal investigation in order to manage its legal risks and demonstrate good governance as well as providing practical guidance about interacting with regulators and reassuring employees and the wider public.

Edited by Paul Lomas, a leading UK practitioner who has acted in a number of corporate governance crises, and Daniel J Kramer, a leading US trial lawyer and litigator with extensive experience in internal investigations, this work provides a unique cross-border approach. The text explores trends within the USA, UK, Hong Kong, Japan, France, Spain, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, on a country-by-country basis, identifying the key regulators that operate in these jurisdictions and the range of responses that are effective in complying with potential or actual regulatory inquiries.

This book deals with the way executives conduct an effective internal investigation. It also provides insights into the subtle differences in the legal environments of the various jurisdictions that can critically impact the conduct of an investigation. In effect, it outlines the fundamental steps and considerations required to respond to regulatory bodies in a manner that minimizes risks and benefits the company in all the jurisdictions in which it operates.
