Saul Herman appears for the SFO in Rolls-Royce DPA

Saul Herman appeared for the SFO as a second junior in the Serious Fraud Office v Rolls-Royce plc. He was lead by Sir Edward Garnier QC, Richard Whitham QC with Chris Foulkes, Allison Clare and Jennifer Carter-Manning.

The allegations of bribery and corruption resolved spanned six different jurisdictions and allegations of offences under both the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906 and the Bribery Act 2010.

The Deferred Prosecution Agreement entails the payment by Rolls-Royce of over £500 million and was concluded alongside resolutions of similar allegations by the US Department of Justice and the Brazilian Ministério Público Federal.

The approval of the DPA by the President of the Queen’s Bench Division is only the third UK DPA to have concluded since the passage of the Crime and Courts Act 2013.
