This chapter examines the role of private parties in criminal law enforcement of corporations,with particular emphasis on the compliance industry and corporate monitors. More specifically, it considers the nature of the collaboration between public enforcers and private parties that stems from current corporate enforcement strategies, along with the costs and benefits of those partnerships. It also explores the changing conceptions of public and private interests developing out of the 2008 economic crisis and the bailout of financial institutions. Finally, it discusses the impact of public/private partnerships on corporate crime deterrence and whether deferred prosecution agreements have achieved the advantages of industry-wide corporate regulation or succeeded in inculcating broad norms of compliance.
