Thanks to policies at the Department of Justice and other agencies, the benefits of voluntary self-disclosure prior to a criminal or civil enforcement action can be substantial. Prosecutors in particular have responded to voluntary self-disclosure by reducing charges and penalties, offering deferred prosecution and non-prosecution agreements, and entering into more favorable consent decrees and settlements. These enforcement policies are meant to encourage corporate disclosures and have been leading to substantially reduced fines in many cases over the past two years in particular. And even though they do not provide a guarantee that disclosures will yield a favorable result, the process of self-disclosing and “naming names” should not be entered into without careful consideration of how and when to do it, and executives should consider ways in which to protect themselves from personal liability. Join our panel of experts as they walk through the trends they’re seeing today for personal accountability of executives, the current state of policies, and the tools available to executives when considering self-disclosing.
