As an executive, managing director or board member, you are exposed to legal challenges on a daily basis. Increasingly, criminal law also plays a role: tax errors in your company or with contractual partners can escalate into criminal law risk factors. Fraud, embezzlement or corruption appear in many different forms. Supply chains carry undetected risks into your company. Misconduct by employees or criminal charges by competitors can trigger official investigations. And almost in every case, public investigations lead to a loss of reputation with customers, banks and business partners. Finding your way swiftly through the critical situation of criminal proceedings and anticipating risks is demanding. And essential for a professional response. This is exactly where we can help.
We advise executives, managing directors and board members in Germany and abroad. Our clients include in particular banks, financial institutions, private equity companies as well as medium-sized enterprises in every sector. We help to avoid criminal law risks from the outset. And in the event of an emergency, we defend the company and those responsible for it against authorities and courts. We also offer start-ups uncomplicated advice and the willingness to quickly familiarise ourselves with new business areas.
We are highly specialised in criminal law. In addition to criminal tax law, our focus is on commercial and white-collar criminal law. In these areas we advise companies and individuals from Germany and abroad. We work with the utmost diligence and a strong commercial understanding. Personal responsiveness and efficient procedures are just as important to us as proven outstanding expertise. In this way, we combine the quality of a large commercial law firm with the advantages of an independent and flexible unit.
From tax investigation cases and tax corrections to negotiations before criminal and fiscal courts – criminal tax law is our core competence.
We defend against allegations of white-collar crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, bribery or betrayal of business secrets.
As corporate defence lawyers, we support companies that are affected by investigations or have been harmed by criminal offences.
These 8 principles define the way we work with our clients.
