Corporate criminal liability is a contentious issue: should companies ever be held criminally liable for actions of employees? If so, what form should that liability take? Should there be more ‘failure to prevent’ offences? Does criminal liability unfairly punish innocent shareholders or employees? Would civil liability be a better alternative? What practical differences exist in investigating wrongdoing by large companies in contrast to small firms? Are negotiated settlements a fair solution?

As part of that review, the Law Commission has arranged a series of webinars to explore different aspects of corporate criminal liability.
