GIR - data privacy & transfer in investigations guide

Investigations by regulators and enforcement agencies, as well as internal investigations by companies, are common. Successfully managing the risks arising from these investigations requires expertise across a number of areas and can be complex where relevant information is held in multiple locations worldwide. 

To assist with identifying some of the issues that need to be considered, members of Allen & Overy's market-leading global investigations and data privacy practice groups have contributed 11 chapters to the updated GIR Know how: Data privacy & transfer in investigations cross-border guide.
