Christopher Houssemayne du Boulay writes for FCPA Blog on DPAs
3 Nov 2020
Business Crime partner Christopher Houssemayne du Boulay has written an article for the FPCA Blog in which he analyses the SFO’s recently published internal handbook on Deferred Prosecution Agreements (DPAs).
Christopher highlights the section in the handbook which deals with the rights of third parties to be addressed in a DPA – something that was absent from both the DPA legislation and also the existing Code of Practice.
Christopher argues that the SFO’s handbook goes some way to rectifying the injustice which has seen individuals being named as culpable in a DPA despite having been acquitted of all criminal wrongdoing.
