CD-ROM icon
by Miriam Weismann. American Bar Association. 2012.
370 pages.

"This important book examines the financial and legal consequences of corporate crime while delving into a broader perspective for the practitioner on the motivations of corporate crime, the financial schemes involved, what the law prohibits, how to engage in effective damage control and more. This book addresses not just the financial and legal consequences of prosecution but also places into a broader perspective for the practitioner and observer what the motivations are, how the financial schemes look, what the law prohibits, and how to engage in effective damage control in an effort to resuscitate the dying patient. It's not just a "how to" book, it's also a "what not to do" book. The second edition updates changes in the law after 2009 to include the Supreme Court's post-Enron changes to the "honest-services" fraud theory of prosecution under U.S.C. §1346; the increased use of parallel proceedings through the expansion of the False Claims Act by the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009; the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, including the enhanced whistleblower protections; updated Foreign Corrupt Practices Act statistics through 2011; major revisions to the Department of Justice policies on criminal discovery and more." - from the publisher
