Leslie Caldwell, head of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, is, in her own words, “pounding the pavement on cooperation and transparency.”  Speaking on Tuesday at the New York City Bar’s fourth annual White Collar Crime Institute in Manhattan, Caldwell took another opportunity to discuss what the government expects of companies that seek to cooperate with criminal investigations.  She emphasized that companies choosing cooperation and expecting to get full credit must act with candor and give the Department all relevant information in a timely fashion. In particular, the Justice Department expects companies to learn and disclose all knowable, relevant facts and to share them, whether they be good or bad and no matter how high the rank of the individuals responsible for the misconduct.
