With corporate criminal prosecutions on the rise, the potential impact of corporate fines and sanctions looms over corporate officers and directors and their legal advisors. Corporate Criminal Liability and Prevention provides essential guidance on all aspects of this critical area--the sources of corporate criminal liability, the immediate and collateral consequences of conviction, and the available defenses to, and limitations on, liability.
This thoroughly up-to-date guide also examines current prosecutorial discretion standards, amnesties and sentencing guidelines. It instructs corporate counsel on how to adopt forward-looking compliance policies that can prevent criminal liability and how to mitigate the severity of penalties when they are unavoidable.
Corporate Criminal Liability and Prevention is a comprehensive work, providing both substantive analysis of the law and strategic advice for practitioners. Whether you are handling a corporate criminal case or advising a corporation on how to avoid one, this book will help you give your clients clear guidance on the best strategies and compliance policies in light of the latest legal developments.
