White Collar Crime

Criminally liable legal persons prohibited from entering into public sector contracts
Spain | 06 January 2014

The Criminal Code establishes the possibility of punishing legal persons which have been held liable for criminal offences with a prohibition on entering into contracts with the public administration. Given the political climate in Spain, and with the public increasingly calling for tougher punishment for corruption, it is likely that the courts and public administration will impose this penalty more often.
