The Verdict

20/06/2014

This edition of The Verdict focuses on deferred prosecution agreements.

In February 2014, UK prosecutors (including the Serious Fraud Office – SFO) were given a new tool to combat corporate crime: deferred prosecution agreements (DPAs).

DPAs are judge-approved agreements negotiated by a prosecutor with a corporate defendant, under which the defendant avoids a criminal conviction for specified offences by agreeing to certain terms (which are published) and complying with them during the life of the agreement.
