Investigations that span national boundaries can be some of the trickiest, yet some of the most rewarding to pursue. Offshored corporate interests, multinational company structures and global supply chains often take investigators overseas, into jurisdictions they may be unfamiliar with. Local language, unknown administrative and regulatory conventions, hidden media biases and restrictive data provision can be significant barriers to a successful investigation. This session will look at tools to overcome the challenges of cross-border investigations and uncover an entity's global footprint, including an introduction to Arachnys Investigator, which enables users to query thousands of global public corporate, legal, news and regulatory data sources from 200 countries in real time.
