Tax and White Collar Crime Law
Business life is controlled in many facets by criminal and administrative offences law. In particular, managing directors and senior executives of companies quickly become the focus of the investigating authorities and criminal courts. The criminal and procedural risks of people and companies, far from being associated with “ordinary” crime, are increasing due to ever more complex economic processes, but also due to technical innovations.
The minimisation and control of such risks are the goal of a compliance management system – also for medium-sized companies. Our experts are available to advise you on the implementation.
In the event that an investigation has already been initiated, we will work with you to bring it to a conclusion quickly and, if possible, without damage to you and the company.
One of our main areas of expertise is the sensitive field of criminal tax law, representing and advising our clients vis-à-vis the tax authorities and before the criminal and tax courts. In doing so, we can draw on our decades of experience in the field of tax law and the expertise of our specialist lawyers for tax law. We also cover other areas of white collar crime as well as cartel law.
In addition, we handle the diverse issues arising from our clients’ business activities in connection with investigations under environmental and waste criminal law (for example, in the context of shipping accidents), labour and social law (for example, in audits under social security law), corruption (for example, in procurement proceedings) and insolvency criminal law (for example, insolvency fraud).
