International Mapping Of Criminal Liability Of Executive Officers And Legal Entities


May 2022

A survey conducted by the lawyers of BARO ALTO law firm and members of the IR Global network.

Our approach

Baro Alto law firm carried out a survey –in partnership with the French think tank institution Institut pour l’Innovation Economique et Sociale (2IES) and Professor Pascal Beauvais, lecturer at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne– on the connection between a legal entity’s criminal liability and that of its chief executive officer under French law.

To fuel reflection on the following subject: “Reconsider the connection between criminal liability of legal entities and that of their corporate officers for improved legal protection?”, Baro Alto decided to survey various foreign legal systems to find out what solutions they may have adopted in that respect.

Thus, Baro Alto contacted its IR Global network and organised a webinar on the subject on 1 March 2022. Baro Alto requested the participant law firms to validate the information it provided on their legal system and the connection between the criminal liability of legal entities and that of their executive officers.
