  • United States Department Of Justice Issues Voluntary Self-Disclosure Policy Pursuant To Deputy Attorney General’s September 15, 2022, Memorandum

    On February 22, 2023, the United States Department of Justice issued the United States Attorney’s Offices’ Voluntary Self-Disclosure Policy for corporate criminal enforcement, which sets forth the criteria the 94 United States Attorney’s Offices will use to determine the appropriate resolution for a corporate entity that voluntarily self-discloses misconduct to a USAO. The VSD Policy is intended to provide incentives, including declinations or reduced fines, to corporations that timely disclose misconduct, cooperate with the DOJ’s investigation, and remediate misconduct. It applies to all USAOs and is effective immediately.
