Ever since the Serious Fraud Office concluded its first Deferred Prosecution Agreement with Standard Bank in late 2015, London lawyers have had the settlement under a microscope, trying to glean what they can from the judge’s decision.

In this issue, we take our own microscopes to the case. At GIR Live London in April, we invited a select group of panellists – including counsel to Standard Bank, Nicholas Purnell QC at Cloth Fair Chambers – to give their verdict on the DPA and to discuss the role of privilege in internal investigations.
