Civil Recovery Orders: Law, Policy and Practice

Abstract

This chapter explores the development of civil recovery as an enforcement tool in the context of corporate crime. It explores the preference for ‘civil settlement’, with the consequence that corporate wrongdoers can avoid criminal prosecution. A number of concerns are explored in this regard. This chapter also examines the divergent approaches of the Serious Fraud Office and the Scottish Civil Recovery Unit, namely that as the rest of the UK moves away from CROs, such powers remain an important cog in the Scottish enforcement response to corporate crime.
