Linklaters review of corporate criminal liability in 24 jurisdictions provides at-a-glance answers to twelve questions, including:

  • whether it is legally obliged to co-operate with the prosecution authorities there;
  • the kind of sanctions that can be imposed on a company found criminally liable for corporate wrongdoing; and
