United Kingdom: Cooperation since Rolls-Royce: Learning Points for Companies and Individuals
Dechert lawyers have authored the United Kingdom chapter in the 2018 Global Investigations Review European, Middle Eastern and African Investigations Review.
Last year, Dechert's chapter considered in detail the learning points on cooperation from the Rolls-Royce deferred prosecution agreement (DPA), which was finalised on 17 January 2017. This year, we consider the latest guidance from the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) in relation to how it views the required standards of cooperation for companies wanting to be invited into a DPA process.
