Managing Operational and Legal Challenges in Multi Jurisdictional Investigations

The investigation of suspected fraud and misconduct frequently falls within the responsibility of either a corporate security function or a provider of security services. Such investigations are particularly challenging when the nature of the case is such that evidence needs to be gathered and / or evaluated in more than one jurisdiction. This presentation will discuss the investigative process and highlight a number of areas where the fact that the investigation stretches beyond a single jurisdiction poses additional challenges to investigators. It will also provide some suggestions on how to manage complexity and avoid the most typical pitfalls encountered by security professionals dealing with such matters.
