Clifford Chance contributes to the sixth edition of Global Investigation Review's Practitioner’s Guide

Sixth edition of "The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations" published in January 2022.

Global Investigations Review (GIR) has published the sixth edition of its practical guide for external and in-house counsel, compliance officers and accounting practitioners, with chapters authored by leading practitioners from around the world.

Clifford Chance partners Celeste Koeleveld, Christopher Morvillo and Luke Tolaini are co-editors of the guide, alongside Judith Seddon (Ropes & Gray LLP), Eleanor Davison (Fountain Court Chambers), Michael Bowes QC (Outer Temple Chambers), Ama A Adams (Ropes & Gray LLP). Lawyers from across the Clifford Chance global network, including our Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Perth, Warsaw, London and New York offices, also contributed chapters to the guide.

The Guide tracks the lifecycle of a serious issue, from its discovery through investigation and resolution, and the many steps, considerations and decisions along the way - and at each critical point, includes chapters from the perspective of experienced practitioners across the globe.

This year Clifford Chance contributed to a number of chapters, covering both substantive topics and jurisdictional overviews, including two newly added chapters on Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) Investigations and investigations in Poland.

Volume I of the guide covers global investigations in the United Kingdom and the United States. As an introductory chapter to the broader issues covered in this volume, Celeste Koeleveld, Christopher Morvillo and Luke Tolaini contributed to an overview of UK and US law regarding the concepts of corporate criminal liability and double jeopardy – two key considerations for a company at the outset of an investigation in both or either jurisdiction. Volume I also contains chapters contributed to by Clifford Chance including: Whistleblowers: The US Perspective; Monitorships; and the newly added chapter concerning Environmental Social and Governance Investigations.

In the face of the growing number of cross-border investigations that practitioners face, Volume II of the guide covers global investigations around the world. This volume provides a comparative view to a common set of questions that highlight local challenges, issues and nuances that practitioners are likely to face when conducting an investigation. Clifford Chance contributed chapters on Australia, Hong Kong, Poland, and Singapore.
