The importance of criminal law for business life has increased significantly in recent decades. Not only individuals, but also companies themselves are criminally liable. Even the initiation of criminal investigations and the attendant media exposure can have drastic economic consequences.
We advise clients who are caught up in the cogs of the criminal justice system in complex white-collar criminal cases, such as allegations of fraud, breach of trust, embezzlement, corruption, tax evasion or environmental crimes.
We represent clients’ interests with the diligence required of a criminal defence lawyer, coupled with the mature expertise of a business lawyer. We advise on ongoing investigations, interrogations, searches of premises or seizures and defend clients’ rights in main proceedings before the criminal courts. We also represent crime victims, private parties and private litigants in the pursuit of their civil claims.
In addition, we conduct internal company investigations and advise on implementing appropriate compliance and prevention measures.
