View Debevoise Update
Paris criminal court imposed a €3.7 billion fine on a bank for illegal solicitation of financial services and aggravated laundering of the proceeds of tax fraud.
This largest-ever fine imposed by a French criminal court constitutes the biggest victory for the French National Financial Prosecutor’s office.
Given the magnitude of the fines, companies may now be more likely to consider French-style DPAs.
