are authors of "2014 Year-End Update on Corporate Non-Prosecution Agreements and Deferred Prosecution Agreements (Part 1)" published in the March 2015 issue of Westlaw Journal’s White-Collar Crime. The article is the first installment of a two-part series discusses trends in deferred prosecution agreements and non-prosecution agreements in 2014. Part 2 will address two interesting developments that occurred last year relating to the role of independent monitors in the settlement process. These developments help to define the scope of an independent monitor’s confidentiality interests and shed light on the potential for post-settlement imposition of corporate monitoring requirements.
