Article summary

Welcome to the June 2016 highlights from the Lexis®PSL Corporate Crime team. This month’s highlights include an assessment of the impact Brexit will have for corporate crime lawyers, consideration of the SFO’s newly published guidance on when lawyers will be permitted to attend section 2 interviews and a look at why the EU has established a Committee of Inquiry to investigate compliance with money laundering, tax evasion and tax avoidance. Recent news has been dominated by Brexit but we have also considered the Government’s plans for strengthening the laws on whistleblowing, the requirements of the Digital Case System (DCS) in the Crown Courts in England and Wales, the increased use of jury questionnaires in Coroners’ Inquests, and the failed corporate manslaughter prosecution against Maidstone and Tonbridge Wells NHS Trust and the subsequent costs application by the Trust. Recent cases on the sentencing of environmental offences, contempt of court and coroners’ inquests are brought to your attention, as are this month’s new and updated Practice Notes and Checklists on Lexis®PSL Corporate Crime. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
