DOJ Publishes New Guidance on Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Criminal Division recently released a guidance document entitled "The Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs," an updated version of the guidance the DOJ's Fraud Section had released in February 2017. The 2019 guidance "seeks to better harmonize the guidance with other Department guidance and standards while providing additional context to the multifactor analysis of a company's compliance program," and was compiled with the input from various DOJ components, including the Office of the Assistant General, Fraud Section, and the Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section.

U.S. v. Connolly: Significant Implications for Companies Seeking to Cooperate in Government Investigations

A U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York ruling in United States v.
