Product details

The first book to examine the Organizational Sentencing Guidelines in detail, Federal Corporate Sentencing: Compliance and Mitigation shows how to develop and improve an internal compliance program—a critical preventive tool and the most important mitigating factor in sentencing. Because the Guidelines give legal recognition to compliance programs, a properly designed program can make the difference between a fine of several thousand dollars and one in the tens of millions.

This essential reference also brings you comprehensive coverage of subjects such as: determination of sentences, including aggravating and mitigating factors; global compliance programs; standards of conduct under Sarbanes-Oxley; advocacy strategies when dealing with prosecutors, judges and probation officers; guidance on advising corporations already under federal scrutiny; the use of deferred and non-prosecution agreements; government policies on waiver of the attorney-client privilege and work product protection as proof of a corporation's full cooperation; "corporate probation"; the interplay between the sentencing guidelines for individuals and for corporations; environmental and antitrust offenses; and more.
