With the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, the criminalliability of companies entered a new era. The third edition of this practical guide to corporate criminal liability updates its coverage in light of Supreme Court decisions on the 2007 act and wide-ranging other developments.

It deals with all offences where corporations can have a criminal liability, from Companies Act 2006 offences and those under the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000 to fraudulent trading and corruption, as well as corporate manslaughter.

  • Defines the essential concepts, including what constitutes a 'corporation', the meaning of 'victim', and how the courts have construed the notion of 'corporate liability'
  • Examines each offence in turn, discussing what must be proved, the prosecution process, including evidence requirements, and sentencing
  • Discusses how corporations can defend themselves from prosecution and cooperate fully with external investigators
  • Explains the practical impact of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 through a number of case studies, including Brown v Stott
  • Explains what happens when criminality is proved against a corporation
  • Advises on what companies should be doing to avoid the potential for breaking the law
  • Covers criminality in the context of insolvency and how insolvency affects a prosecution
  • Includes an exhaustive quick-reference table of specific offences
