BCL partner, Richard Sallybanks writes for Law 360 examining the case between the U.K. Serious Fraud Office and Tesco Stores Limited following the recent publication of the terms of the deferred prosecution agreement which provides a glaring example of how a DPA can result in real injustice to individuals and how the statutory DPA regime fails to provide them with any remedy.

Each year at BCL, we ask our members of staff to nominate a charity that they would like us to support. The aim of our Charity of the Year is to support a cause that could be local to our firm or one with a personal connection to our members of staff.
