A company or corporation exists independently of its owners and those in charge of its day-to-day operations. Although a company's independent legal personality is a well-established idea, whether a company's misbehaviour can be subject to criminal law sanctions has been a contentious issue. While it is common knowledge that individuals in charge of a company can be held criminally liable for their actions, the more difficult question is whether such actions can be attributed to the company (due to its separate legal existence), making it liable for the consequences of a criminal offense.
