"Extraterritoriality: The US Perspective," The Practitioner's Guide to Global Investigations - Sixth Edition

Investigations conducted by U.S. prosecutors and regulators often concern conduct outside the United States and involve evidence located abroad. The two questions of whether U.S. law applies to the conduct under investigation and whether U.S. authorities can compel the production of evidence located abroad are of significant importance to practitioners.

Partners James Loonam and Ryan Andreoli provide an in-depth analysis of extraterritoriality from the U.S. perspective in a chapter they co-authored for Global Investigation Review's The Practitioner's Guide to Global Investigations - Sixth Edition.
