Worldwide, governmental transnational law enforcement efforts, including prominently initiatives to stem global corruption, have been ramping up like never before. As a survey of recent global enforcement trends confirms, resolving a matter with the original investigative authority may well only be the start of the legal woes. Put another way, the very same facts that give rise to the initial investigation in Country A could—and, indeed, often do—lead to a successive prosecution in Country B, Country C, and so forth. This book chapter – co-authored by Partner T. Markus Funk and Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew S. Boutros – examines the new global enforcement landscape, and provides practical guidance for companies and individuals operating in it.
