Ceresney and Yates Continue to Stress Individual Accountability, Voluntary Reporting and Cooperation

Individual accountability is “a core value of our criminal justice system that perseveres regardless of which party is in power,” Deputy Attorney General Sally Q. Yates said at ACI’s recent FCPA conference, adding that she therefore expects the DOJ’s focus on individual accountability to continue into President-Elect Trump’s administration. She and Andrew J. Ceresney, the Director of the SEC Division of Enforcement, each delivered keynote addresses at the conference, emphasizing the DOJ and SEC’s focus on individual accountability and reiterating the now-familiar theme of the benefits of voluntary disclosure and cooperation. They spoke on the growing trend of international cooperation and what to expect from the new administration when it comes to anti-corruption enforcement.
