Commercial criminal law and criminal tax law

Among other things, we have one of today's most prominent German criminal lawyers and his team to advise our clients in the area of commercial criminal law. Regardless of the complexity of the issues, we always represent the interests of our clients to the highest degree possible and with a great deal of experience and specialisation. In recent years, we have been able to prove this in proceedings that have received a great deal of attention throughout Germany and Europe, as well as in such cases in which our clients have been able to avoid any public coverage of the proceedings.

Our legal activities, with which we support you in the stressful situation of prosecution, include representation in preliminary investigations and defence in criminal cases, as well as preventive criminal risk analysis. The sustainable and ongoing counselling and representation of companies in criminal affairs or on matters of compliance is another subject of our criminal law activities. We have many years of expertise in criminal law, especially in the context of long and complex hearings, focusing in particular on cases relating to the following areas of commercial criminal law:

  • Criminal law on corruption
  • Banking and capital market criminal law
  • Criminal property law (in particular the law covering embezzlement and fraud)
  • Insolvency criminal law
  • Criminal law relating to tax and customs issues
  • Criminal law relating to financial accounting
  • Criminal law relating to industrial relations (including industrial accidents)
  • Criminal product liability
  • Environmental criminal law
  • Criminal law relating to physicians and other medical matters
  • Criminal law relation to foreign trade
  • Law relationg to administrative offences (company fines)

In addition, our law firm has extensive experience in advising and supporting civil liability risks that are often accompanied by commercial criminal law allegations. Through our well-coordinated cooperation and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, we can advise you right from the onset of criminal investigations on matters of board liability and other liability issues, as well as at the important interface of D&O insurance law. This is an advantage that should not be underestimated in the context of commercial criminal law proceedings, which are normally lengthy.

The size and structure of our law firm enables us to conduct or support company representations or internal investigations. Furthermore, we can also provide rapid and efficient legal assistance in the event of searches, pre-trial detentions or the confiscation of property. Our comprehensive focus on commercial law and the points of contact in such areas of jurisprudence also enable us to assemble teams of specialised lawyers from various fields, as well as experts in other areas (tax advisers, auditors or public relations people).
