Last week, Mayer Brown partners Matt Kluchenek and Glen Kopp explored individual cooperation with the Department of Justice (DOJ) in an investigation. In this week’s episode, they address corporate cooperation with the DOJ and the Corporate Enforcement Policy (CEP). The CEP provides a presumption that the DOJ will decline to prosecute a corporation when the corporation has met three elements: (i) voluntary self-disclosure; (ii) full cooperation; and (iii) remediation. Matt and Glen discuss the first two elements of the CEP this week. In a future episode, they will cover the all-important remediation requirement.
At the Crossroads: CFTC and DOJ Enforcement is a video weekly series hosted by Matt and Glen. Each episode, they discuss a topic at the intersection of enforcement by the CFTC and the DOJ. The goal: to help legal and compliance departments protect their organizations in an increasingly rigorous regulatory environment.
