Discussion on the risks, pitfalls, and insurance implications of a deferred prosecution agreement
Our podcast discusses how a cross-border issue and investigation can lead to a deferred prosecution agreement (DPA), and how to manage the risks, pitfalls, and insurance implications.
The Serious Fraud Office most recently secured its fourth DPA. Alongside this, international regulatory bodies have been strengthening their commitment to cross-border cooperation and heightened regulatory scrutiny.
In September 2016 Marsh ran an event on the risk of DPAs and collective actions. During that seminar, expert lawyers and insurers explored the implications of the evolving regulatory environment and advised on possible steps to mitigate an organisation's risk.
Following this successful event and pursuant to requests from attendees, we have recorded podcasts with our speakers to further inform you on issues around DPAs. The first in our series is now available here and features Chris Warren-Smith, formerly Head of Investigations for Europe, the Middle East and Asia from Norton Rose Fulbright discussing how a cross-border issue and investigation can lead to a DPA, and how to manage the risks, pitfalls, and insurance implications, with Claire Garrett (Advocate, Complex Claims and Disputes Team) and Robert Barnes (Client Executive, Financial Lines Team) from Marsh*.
*On the date this podcast was recorded, only two DPAs had been announced.
