Government debate on Corporate Crime

The Guardian reports today (3 September 2013) on debate within government on adopting a tough US-style approach to corporate offending, quoting Jonathan Fisher QC: 'Jonathan Fisher QC, a barrister specialising in financial crime, has been a long-standing proponent of reform, insisting that DPAs are unlikely to prove an effective tool without a credible threat of corporate prosecution. "If you put yourselves in the shoes of a company, the first thing you are going to ask yourselves in cases like these is: 'What are the chances of conviction'? If it is low, there is little point in engaging in discussions about a settlement."
