Minimizing Exposure- Prevention and Preparation by Adjunct Professor, Chris Paul of McAfee and Taft-Attorneys at Law

The best protection that management can provide to minimize liability is enactment of corporate policies and practices through an integrated program that reduces the likelihood that environmental problems will arise and that rapidly handles problems that are discovered. If implemented prior to criminal conduct, compliance programs may be a useful tool in convincing prosecutors that the company and its senior managers too all reasonable steps to prevent illegal conduct. If a company is convicted of a crime, the absence of a compliance program grounded in working policies and procedures virtually guarantees serious problems at sentencing.
