Department Of Justice Issues Updated Guidelines For Corporate Prosecution


U.S. Deputy Attorney General Paul J. McNulty announced yesterday that the Department of Justice has superseded the recently embattled “Thompson Memo” setting forth “Principles of Federal Prosecution of Business Organizations.” The new guidelines, embodied in a document already branded the “McNulty Memo,” depart from the Thompson Memo in two important areas: (i) waivers of attorney-client privilege and work-product protections; and (ii) advancement of legal fees to employees under investigation and indictment."
