This is a timely and important book. Hard-hitting regulatory powers are on the increase and the appetite to use them grows. Multi-national corporations are struggling to grapple with cross-border legal problems arising from fraud, particularly when fast-moving issues need to be addressed in a timely and effective manner in order to avoid extreme financial and reputational consequences.
An in-house lawyer who wants to find out, lawfully, whether or not there has been corrupt conduct by a foreign subsidiary, or whether an internal investigation should be launched, will need help in not tripping up over the differences in foreign legal systems, while trying to gather information. This book provides that help. It is detailed, it is helpful, it is good guidance.
