Article summary

This week’s edition of Corporate Crime highlights includes analysis of the Crime (Overseas Production Orders) Bill (designed to give the police faster access to electronic evidence outside the UK), calls from the US Department of Justice (DOJ) for corporations to take advantage of the DOJ's Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) opinion procedure and the growing use of expert accountants in health and safety sentencing hearings. We also explore whether the parameters of legal professional privilege (LPP) are about to be redefined in a family law case as well as a key coronial law decision determining that the civil (and not criminal) standard of proof applies to a conclusion of suicide at a coroner’s inquest and warnings from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) that the legal profession is increasingly coming under attack from cybercriminals. Updates to the Criminal Practice Directions are also covered with news of a Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) consultation on proposed revised guidance for director disqualification orders in competition cases. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
