We bring perspective into criminal law

In the course of their daily business, companies, managing directors or shareholders repeatedly encounter criminal law issues that have the potential to negatively affect or jeopardize the success of their enterprise. The support offered by our experts covers the entirety of business criminal law (white collar crime) including corruption, fraud as well as tax and environmental criminal law, in order to chart a safe course through these matters.

As your criminal defense attorneys, we support you through the entire criminal proceedings – from assessing the initial suspicions to reaching a legal settlement. Besides defending individuals and companies (corporate responsibility), we also represent companies that have suffered damages. Moreover, we also help our clients with establishing internal compliance structures in order to avoid infringements. We also conduct internal investigations to clarify situations in your company that have a relevance to criminal law.

Criminal law is closely related to tax law, corporate law, financial reporting standards, banking and financial market law, as well as business administration law. Therefore our services include the best possible legal and tax solutions that are coordinated between us and the experts at LeitnerLeitner.
