Department of Justice Announces New Policy on Coordination of Enforcement Actions and Corporate Penalties


Posted on May 15, 2018, by Peter Baldwin in DOJ. Comments Off on Department of Justice Announces New Policy on Coordination of Enforcement Actions and Corporate Penalties

This policy is likely to protect companies from unfair outcomes resulting from a lack of coordination among the DOJ and other authorities.

I authored an alert that provides an overview of the new policy and discusses the potential impact on companies affected.
