Recent Statistics on Deferred Prosecution Agreements

A new item on SSRN provides some interesting statistics on deferred prosecution agreements. AUSA Ryan McConnell (not writing on behalf of the department) and Lawrence D. Finder of Haynes & Boone posted a piece entitled, "Annual Corporate Pre-Trial Update 2007."  They present three trends from 2007.

  • "First, the number of corporate pre-trial agreements rose sharply from 2006 to 2007."
  • "Second, the number of corporate pre-trial agreements containing attorney client privilege and work-product waivers has declined significantly."
  • "Finally, two thirds of all agreements involved violations of either the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) or the federal health care laws."

The piece provides a detailed analysis of each of these conclusions.
