The way companies conduct thorough internal investigations has evolved considerably in recent years, particularly in the United States. Recommended practices for investigating a whistleblower complaint, or other suspicion or allegation of employee wrongdoing, have grown complex and sophisticated.

A multinational setting out to investigate possible wrongdoing in its overseas operations might assume it only has to use its U.S. internal investigatory best practices toolkit. But doing that requires nuance, flexibility, and advance planning. In fact, conducting an overseas investigation in the U.S. style can trigger legal challenges abroad. Of course, an international investigation has to stay strictly legal ― investigators inquiring into possible criminal misconduct cannot afford to be caught breaking the law themselves.

This fast-paced program addresses how a multinational should project-manage a cross-border internal investigation to meet headquarters' high standards while also complying with applicable foreign laws, accounting for differing expectations overseas that can be inconsistent with American-style investigatory practices. This program addresses:

  • Threshold strategic considerations before launching an international internal investigation
  • Stages and steps for conducting an effective investigation outside the U.S.
  • "Watch-outs" and traps under foreign data protection laws, employment laws and whistleblower laws
