It goes on much more often than most people know. I just had breakfast this morning with an individual who is a senior official in a non-high tech sector multi-billion dollar corporation.
The government recently approached him about using his firm for an undercover operation. He thought it was a bad idea---just from the perspective of getting the company involved in such stuff. He is not a libertarian. He ran the government request by the general counsel of the corporation.
The general counsel came back to him: "Yes, we want to do this. We are always getting flak for not co-operating enough with government. We will be able to show that we co-operated in this operation."
