Deferred Prosecution Agreements
16.12.2013

DPAs are expected to be available from Spring next year. The legislation will apply to any qualifying offence, whenever committed, as long as the defendant has not yet been charged. It is likely therefore that the first DPAs will be concluded in only a few months' time, in respect of current investigations.

While the legal framework for DPAs is more or less settled, quite how the process will work in practise, and how DPAs will be approached by the Courts, is much less clear.

To consider the practical application of a major new step in corporate criminal enforcement, QEB Hollis Whiteman will host a breakfast seminar on 15 January 2014. We are very pleased that those  participating will include the Senior Resident Judge from Southwark Crown Court, a former Director of Public Prosecutions and Judge, and a former US attorney with wide experience of the operation of DPAs in the US System. We very much hope that you will be able to join us.

The discussion will be led by:

Sir David Calvert-Smith - former DPP and High Court Judge
His Honour Judge McCreath - Honorary Recorder of Westminster
Roger A. Burlingame - Attorney, Kobre & Kim LLP, formerly of US Attorney's Office, NY.

Date: Wednesday 15th January 2014
Venue: QEB Hollis Whiteman, 1-2 Laurence Pountney Hill, London, EC4R 0EU
Time: 07:45 registration, 08:00-09:15 seminar
RSVP: barristers@qebhw.co.uk
