Partner David Corker has written for FCPA Professor on the U.K Deferred Prosecution Agreement Regime, where he works to align rhetoric and reality through discussing its importance to the Serious Fraud Office in the interest of justice.
“The SFO’s appetite for resolving criminal allegations of complex fraud via a DPA, one that avoids the risks, delay and expense of a trial, is strong. In recent years they constitute the lion’s share of the SFO’s sparse litigation successes. They stand in contrast to, and from an SFO standpoint, go a long way towards eclipsing, its unimpressive record as regards the trial and conviction of individuals. DPAs are doing more than shoring up the SFO’s reputation; they are helping it to survive,” he writes.
