Launch of the fourth edition of Global Investigations Review – The Practitioner’s Guide to International Investigations

Outer Temple Chambers was delighted to support Michael Bowes QC at the launch of the fourth edition of the Global Investigations Review (GIR) – The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations. The launch event took place on 13th February at The Royal Horseguards Hotel and was attended by key practitioners in this field. Outer Temple Chambers were proud to sponsor the event.

Michael Bowes QC is co-editor of the work together with Judith Seddon and Ama Adams at Ropes & Gray, Eleanor Davidson at Fountain Court Chambers and Christopher Morvillo, Luke Tolaini and Tara McGrath at Clifford Chance.

Since its launch in 2016, the guide has expanded immensely and currently comprises two volumes. The fourth edition features a breakdown of every stage in US and UK corporate investigations, with a section on the duty of directors to reflect an increased prosecutorial focus on individual accountability on both sides of the Atlantic.

The guide touches on the growing importance of technology in investigating corporate misconduct. It also addresses the heightened enforcement of US sanctions, a topic that GIR has increased its coverage of with the launch of its Just Sanctions section earlier this year.

The guide is available online and for download, as well as in hard copy to GIR subscribers. The guide will be revised annually, and updates will be posted on the GIR website throughout the year.

Michael Bowes QC is highly regarded as an expert in civil and criminal “cross-over” work. Michael specialises in business crime, civil fraud, financial services and international sanctions. He acts for corporate clients and senior managers in global investigations and for the SFO, FCA, CMA and Lloyd’s of London. Should you wish to instruct Michael, please contact David Smith (+44 (0)20 7427 4905).
