Investigations can be triggered by any number of events, but there is a range of issues that will need to be considered at the outset in every investigation. This microsite summarises the key points to consider when handling investigations and highlights recent developments in this rapidly developing area, focusing on English law but including an international perspective.
The issues that arise in investigations will, generally speaking, be common to investigations in many business and financial centres around the world. However, the laws, regulations and practices relating to investigations can vary significantly in different jurisdictions. Failure to obtain local legal advice where appropriate can present serious risks to organisations and their employees. For more information regarding our international expertise, please meet our Investigations team.
