Carol Hansell Discusses Canada’s DPA Regime
April 26, 2019
Senior Partner Carol Hansell was featured in the April 2019 issue of Lexpert Magazine in an article addressing Canada’s deferred prosecution agreement regime.
“There are a bunch of differences between the Canadian and US regimes,” says Carol Hansell, senior partner of Toronto’s Hansell LLP. “For example, our provisions tell prosecutors what they must take into account and also what they must not consider.”
“If the organization is alleged to have bribed a foreign public official, for example, the prosecutor is not permitted to consider Canadian economic interests, potential relations with a state other than Canada, or the identity of the organization or the individual involved.”
