Corporate criminal law continues to evolve. Criminal enforcement is much less regarded as a “last resort” than it used to be and may increasingly be applied in addition to administrative measures. Open norms are expansively interpreted to imply very concrete obligations, making their scope of application unpredictable. As a result of these and other developments, criminal liability risks of companies and their management have steadily increased. At the same time, the room to settle matters out of court has diminished and enforcement has become more aggressive, for example in the use of more intrusive investigation methods and a narrow interpretation of legal privilege.
During this Master Class, Roan Lamp & Marlies Heemskerk – de Waard will discuss the main developments, and attempt to explain the underlying forces at play.
