McGuireWoods partner and former Deputy U.S. Attorney General George Terwilliger discusses, in a
National Law Journal op-ed piece published September 16, a memo recently
issued by Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, which states that the Department of Justice’s prosecutors and civil enforcement lawyers must strictly
enforce corporate misdeeds. The article further discusses the effects of the “Yates Memo” on corporations, counsel and the DOJ. Alex Brackett, a partner in
the firm, contributed to this article.
