White-collar crime has become an area of significant interest for academics, practitioners, policy makers, and those with an interest in corporate affairs. However, this sudden surge of interest lacks a tradition of scholarship in Ireland. Moreover, new laws governing the corporate and financial sectors have also precipitated an increasingly intense demand for legal advice on securing compliance and from those seeking to defend themselves against prosecutions and other enforcement actions.
However, as relatively few criminal investigations and prosecutions were conducted in the past, there is a relative dearth of published materials available for practitioners and researchers in the field. Moreover, even to the extent that published literature is available, it rarely reflects the experiences of those involved in investigating, prosecuting and defending white-collar crime cases. This book provides that foundation. It is also unique in that it is written by the leading senior practitioners, academics and regulators in this field. They provide the definitive account of the substantive and procedural law on white collar crime. This work is likely to stimulate an extensive conversation on corporate regulation and governance, both in Ireland and further afield.
