Business Criminal Law

Criminal Law

We advise and represent individuals and legal entities, legal departments and compliance officers with regard to the prevention and detection of criminal acts, corruption or money laundering.

The general prevention of criminal acts to the detriment of the company (Fraud Prevention and Detection) is a core area of our activities.

In cases of suspected criminal acts, however, our activities also extend to the forensic examination of facts and the initiation or prevention of criminal proceedings. In doing so, we represent management bodies and companies not only on the side of the accused and defendant, but also, insofar as this is in the interest of the company, as a victim or private party representative in order to pursue the civil claims of the private party.


We combine litigation experience with criminal law and business expertise and support companies and their management bodies as well as in-house and association lawyers in providing liability-avoiding compliance advice.
