Tougher Enforcement against Business Professionals
Due to the recent economic crisis and the prosecution of numerous high-profile business crime cases, companies and the professionals working under them today are facing heightened scrutiny from not only the public, but also investigatory agencies with the government. As of late, these agencies have been cracking down on companies engaged in conduct that violates regulations and statutes that were not previously prosecuted. In addition, there is criminalization of conduct that used to be considered administrative or civil. In some cases there are alleged illegal dealings or aggressive business conduct that has come under government scrutiny. Unfortunately, not all the alleged perpetrators caught up in such sweeps are guilty of the crimes they are accused of. Although ignorance and mistakes do not constitute a crime, exhibiting or committing such actions can cause one to become targeted or even prosecuted by law enforcement, which may result in devastating criminal penalties.
