Government Enforcement Attorneys Issue Update on Self-Reporting in the U.S. and U.K.
A cross-office team of attorneys in Ropes & Gray’s government enforcement practice co-authored two updates to the February 2017 edition of Global Investigations Review’s “Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations.” In the updates, and in the initial February 2017 chapter, the authors examine the advantages and disadvantages of self-reporting in the U.S. and the U.K., including how the manner and timing of a self-report can make a crucial difference to mitigating potential penalties that might be imposed. The specific issues examined in the update include:
- The FCPA Pilot Program extension
- The Serious Fraud Office – deferred prosecution agreements
- Cabinet Office review of UK agencies combating economic crime
The recently published update is available here.
The authors are government enforcement partners Amanda Raad, associates Sean Seelinger, Jaime Orloff Feeney and former associate Katerina Sandford.
