The second edition of "The International Comparative Legal Guide to: Corporate Investigations" will soon be published. The Belgian chapter to the guide was authored by Hans Van Bavel together with Frank Staelens from Moore Stephens Belgium.

In the chapter, Hans Van Bavel and Frank Staelens discuss how corporate investigations can help businesses to respond appropriately to whistleblowers’ claims and to identify and address potential misconduct promptly.

Here, they set out their insight on the latest practices, developments and trends in this particular field.

Earlier this year, Hans and Frank already summarized the five most important questions a company needs to have taken into consideration before conducting a corporate investigation in Belgium.

You can read their findings here.
