Criminal law, business offences and compliance

The law on business offences, criminal law and compliance

Occasionally situations arise in business life which require an exact clarification of rights and obligations.

These are regulated in the law on business offences.

Our in-depth understanding of economic principles relates particularly to this young, even though already extremely comprehensive, area of law. Our professional expertise in questions of criminal law, company law and employment of workers, of tax matters and insolvencies, is the perfect basis for dedicated, personal commitment to our clients’ concerns, as a precautionary move or as a specific action.

We represent business organisations and their statutory bodies with great empathy in matters of business offences. The focus of our activities is on the defence of criminal prosecutions, the securing of assets and data protection, as well as the rapid recovery of potential sums in damages.

In addition, we actively participate in the creation of secure structures for enterprises, so that the even negligently committed crimes can be avoided. Given current developments in legislation and particularly in case law, such precautions are well worth taking. Specifically, we provide support for the setting up of clients’ own compliance departments, and provide ongoing assistance with individual questions on legal prevention.

We will support you in matters of civil and criminal liability of corporate bodies. Additionally, as a special service, we offer training in conduct towards investigating and competition authorities in case of inquiries and house searches.
