Episode 69 — Update on DOJ Corporate Enforcement Policies
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has announced a number of modifications to its policies governing prosecution of corporations for criminal and civil violations of law. In 2017, DOJ announced its FCPA Corporate Enforcement Policy. Over the last year, DOJ expanded this policy to apply to non-FCPA corporate violations, as well as mergers and acquisitions. In addition, DOJ recently announced the adoption of an Anti-Piling On Policy, as well as revisions to its Yates Memorandum governing prosecution of culpable individuals.
In this episode, Michael Volkov reviews DOJ’s corporate enforcement policies to provide a current picture of these policies and the impact they have on corporate criminal and civil enforcement.
