First French DPAs for Corruption Offences Concluded
12 March 2018
View Client Update
The first two French DPAs for corruption offences to be concluded have allowed two sub-contractors to French state-owned utility EDF to settle charges of long-running corruption of an EDF procurement officer.
The financial penalties imposed illustrate a clear financial incentive to seek to enter into a French DPA for companies with exposure to corruption-related offences in France.
Nevertheless, the criteria to qualify for a French DPA remain obscure.
