ARLINGTON, Va., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA today announced the publication of Responding to Corporate Criminal Investigations, a new treatise that provides defense counsel and corporate executives with proven strategies and techniques for effectively defending against criminalprosecution.
As federal investigations and prosecutions of corporations and their employees continue to increase, corporate counsel spend more time and effort responding to government inquiries. Corporate counsel must be familiar with all the issues, from document collection, retention, and production, to legal doctrines imposing criminal liability.
Now, a former federal prosecutor and a former SEC enforcement attorney, who collectively possess decades of experience in both bringing and defending against such cases, have teamed up to write a guide on how to respond to federal government investigations and how to develop proactive strategies to prevent corporate criminal liability.
Responding to Corporate Criminal Investigations provides an insider's roadmap—based on the authors' own experiences with a wide variety of federal cases—to help counsel and professionals navigate every stage of the investigative process. A true desk reference, Responding to Corporate Criminal Investigations covers each of the essential topics, including:
The bases for corporate criminal liability and the fundamentals of prosecution
Best practices for responding to government inquiries
Subpoenas and warrants
Managing documentary evidence
Maintaining attorney-client privilege
Negotiating corporate plea agreements
Corporate indemnification and insurance
The expanded use of corporate monitors, and deferred and non-prosecution agreements
This resource includes discussion of the complex steps for conducting an effective and efficient internal investigation, including the methods used and practical tips to avoid the pitfalls most often encountered. Recognizing that many corporations face simultaneous inquiries by the SEC, the treatise also includes relevant considerations for defending parallel proceedings and understanding the impact of a multifaceted investigation.
The authors of Responding to Corporate Criminal Investigations are Kirby D. Behre, a partner in the Litigation Practice of Paul Hastings LLP, Washington, D.C., and a former federal prosecutor and trial lawyer who has practiced criminal, civil, and government contract law for the past 25 years; and Morgan J. Miller, a partner in the Litigation Practice of Paul Hastings LLP, Washington, D.C., co-chair of the firm's Global Compliance and Disputes practice, and a former SEC enforcement lawyer. This treatise is available for sale directly from Bloomberg BNA and will also be available on the Bloomberg Law legal research system.
