Welcome back for the third episode in this podcast series. We are joined by four partners from Mayer Brown’s global Dispute Resolution practice: Chris Chapman and James Whitaker in London, Susanne Harris in Hong Kong, and Glen Kopp in New York, with London based Dispute Resolution senior associate Amanda Plowden asking the questions. The team examines the relevant considerations when deciding whether to launch an investigation, which can involve firms having to take a hard look at difficult issues that they may otherwise prefer to keep under the radar. The team also discusses the regulatory expectations in Hong Kong and the US, as well as the obligations to conduct investigations for ESG reasons.
