Letter from the Editor, July 2016

This issue, we have two extremely practical and helpful articles. The first is by Jim Mintz from Mintz Group, and provides guidance on selecting and managing outside investigators.  When a firm is in trouble and facing prosecution, it can avoid criminal sanction by mending its ways under the watchful eye of a corporate compliance monitor. In our second article, Nigel Coles of Exiger looks at how to manage this highly nuanced relationship.

We also have an article from Steven Nelson, Michael Robbins and Janet Wong from Dorsey on protecting against email wire fraud scams and recovering funds wired to Hong Kong.
