In my experience, ReSharper is a very good tool for enforcing coding standards.

In my opinion, you and your coders should also be aware of the reasons behind the rules. This makes them more likely to be followed, rather than treated as "one of those annoying Management things".
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
