Article summary

Welcome to the March 2016 highlights from the Lexis®PSL Corporate Crime team. This month’s highlights include a review of the changes to the Criminal Practice Directions which come into force on 4 April and consideration of the views recently expressed by Lord Neuberger on legal professional privilege in corporate internal investigations. In recent news, we consider the proposed changes to pre-charge bail in the Policing and Crime Bill, when it is, and is not, permissible to pierce the corporate veil in confiscation proceedings and the procedural requirements for obtaining property freezing orders and disclosure ordering in civil recovery proceedings. Key cases on determining the recoverable amount in confiscation, charging alternative offences and the availability of legal aid for representation at coroners’ inquests are brought to your attention and links to new content added to Lexis®PSL Corporate Crime are provided including new content on legal privilege in criminal investigations. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
