UK Sentencing guidelines now out

UK was criticised for its past record in weak sentencing of corporate offenders, by contrast to the significant penalties imposed in the US.

The new UK Guidelines stress the importance of pro-active compliance and cooperation can impact the quantum of any such penalties.
