Alun Milford, General Counsel, Serious Fraud Office  

9.40: DPAs – does the glove always fit?

Rolls Royce’s DPA represents a huge leap forward for the SFO’s new option. But does that mean the floodgates are about to open? Will all cases be resolved by a DPA now, or is it still a bespoke and rare outcome? What are the attractions and the risks of the DPA process? And do the UK agencies have the firepower to catch those who decide to hunker down and if needs be fight their case?

Questions the panel are expected to discuss include:

  • Have the recent developments changed the risk/reward analysis for companies?
  • Given the size of the Rolls Royce fine, is fighting a case a cost-effective option?
  • Was the Rolls Royce DPA the game-changer that some have claimed?

Stephen Pollard, WilmerHale
