Authors: Kyle Wombolt and Anita Phillips
Kyle Wombolt, global head of corporate crime and investigations, and Anita Phillips, professional support consultant, have updated their guide to corporate investigations in China. This forms part of GIR’s acclaimed text, The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations 2019, third edition. It is regarded as the only text covering the nuts and bolts of multi-jurisdictional corporate investigations.
Our chapter covers the legal and regulatory framework in China, including the major regulatory and enforcement overhaul in 2018. It addresses the stages in an internal corporate investigation, including whistleblower procedures, dealing with employees suspected of misconduct, and witness interviews. It also covers cross-border investigations, data privacy and responding and reporting to the Chinese authorities. Settlements, publicity and relationship issues are also summarised.
