DOJ Relaxes “All or Nothing” Yates Memo

    View Authors December 2018

    The US Department of Justice (DOJ) has softened its policy known as the “Yates Memo.” That policy required companies to produce all relevant information on individuals involved in misconduct in order to be eligible to receive any cooperation credit with DOJ lawyers. Rather than the prior “all or nothing” approach, the new policy requires the company to “identify all individuals substantially involved in or responsible for the misconduct at issue.”
