Navigating the Evolving Landscape of Investigations

March 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In our free webinar sponsored by Ankura and Fieldfisher, we look at how investigators can best consider, approach and navigate the evolving landscape of investigations amidst a host of potential legal and reputational pitfalls that have been gaining prominence in 2024.

We’ll look at the complexities inherent in scoping and managing data collections within increasingly diverse legal landscapes and stringent data privacy regulations.

We’ll also examine the increased focus on workplace misconduct matters, specifically in the context of how best to deal with the nuances regarding approach and methodology that must be considered to ensure a successful investigation, whilst guarding your organisation from reputational harm.

With the advent of the ‘Failure to Prevent Fraud’ Law in the UK, we’ll discuss what organisations should consider with respect to investigating related allegations and how these may differ from traditional forms of employee and supplier fraud schemes. 

We will offer practical advice for investigators on how best to collaborate with global legal, compliance, and third-party entities to ensure their investigations are effective, robust and comply with international laws.
