The DOJ Amnesty Program After The Yates Memo
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET
In the last few months, much has been written about the Yates Memo--a policy directive issued by U.S. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates last September that urges federal prosecutors to focus their investigations on the individuals who are responsible for corporate misconduct. Under the Yates Memo, a company must report all it knows about individual involvement in corporate wrongdoing to receive credit for its cooperation.
How might the Yates Memo affect a company's strategy in deciding whether to approach the DOJ as an amnesty applicant? What impact might this have on cartel investigations? How does this impact the strategy for representing individual company employees? Join us for an informative discussion involving the DOJ Antitrust Division and lawyers who have represented both entities and individuals before the Division.
