On  16  November  2015,  the DoJ announced changes to its white-collar crime prosecution policy, which is used by federal white-collar crime prosecutors in determining how to pursue criminal cases.

The amended policy includes new rules geared towards encouraging more charges against individuals in corporate investigations and formally incorporates measures set out in a recent memo by Deputy Attorney General Sally Quillian Yates (reported in Issue 10 of this newsletter) into the U.S. Attorneys’ Manual.
