Update on Deferred and Non-Prosecution Agreements

Ryan D. McConnell, Larry D. Finder, and Scott L. Mitchell provide new data regarding corporate deferred and non-prosecution agreements. It is interesting to see a decline of sixty percent in 2008 from the number of agreements in 2007. It was not surprising to see that Foreign Corrupt Practice Act agreements were seven of the sixteen agreements in 2008.  This study is a wonderful compilation of who received agreements, the type of agreement, and for what activities.  The article also speaks to compliance programs with a listing, by crime, of features of a DPA/NPA Compliance Program. This piece should be a must-read for in-house counsel and all attorneys working with companies on compliance programs.

The article, to be published in Corporate Counsel Review, is available on SSRN here
