Carolyn Kendall Presents on Corporate Criminal Liability on West LegalEdcenter Webinar on Sept. 16

On September 16, 2020 at 12:00 pm ET, Carolyn H. Kendall presented the CLE webinar, "Understanding and Avoiding Corporate Criminal Liability," sponsored by West LegalEdcenter.

Despite the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) recent focus on prosecuting individuals involved in corporate malfeasance, set out in the “Yates Memo,” corporate criminal liability remains a concern for all companies and organizations, and prosecuting corporate wrongdoers continues to be a high priority for the DOJ.

Ms. Kendall reviewed:

  • The foundational principles of corporate criminal liability.
  • The critical role that compliance programs play in mitigating the risk of criminal enforcement. 
  • DOJ’s recently-updated compliance program evaluation guidance.
  • The practical steps to improve clients’ compliance functions based on recent enforcement actions.
