Deferred prosecution agreements – Directors being hung out to dry?

08 Jul 2013
Deferred Prosecution Agreements ("DPA") have been used in the United States for many years.  DPAs allow companies to take certain steps (either by way of reparation or ensuring that certain offences are not repeated) during a supervisory period and the trade off is that the company and/or the directors will not be prosecuted.  Following the expiry of this period no further action is taken.
