Internal Investigations Under the New DOJ Guidance

Internal Investigations Under the New DOJ Guidance

December 17, 2015

A new U.S. Department of Justice memo (the "Yates memo") sets out guidance aimed at enhancing DOJ's ability to prosecute individuals for corporate wrongdoing. The panel considers the practical and legal implications of the Yates memo, including the challenges for corporate internal investigations, protection of privileged information, and whether the new guidance might result in fewer, rather than more, corporate settlements in criminal cases.

Panelists:

  • Philip Khinda (moderator); Partner; Steptoe & Johnson LLP; Washington, D.C.
  • Yvette Ostolaza; Managing Partner; Sidley Austin LLP; Dallas, TX
  • James M. Cole; Partner; Sidley Austin LLP; former Deputy Attorney General of the United States; Washington, D.C.

Presented by: Corporate Governance Committee
