The relationship between criminal law and regulatory techniques in responses to corporate crime is complex and changing. The Serious Fraud Office’s increased proactivity in relation to economic crime is precariously balanced on the fulcrum of criminal and regulatory rhetoric. In this paper I note significant developments and suggest that the similarities and differences between regulatory and criminal law approaches to corporate accountability are ripe for re-examination.
