When it comes to criminal law enforcement action and penalties can have far-reaching consequences for both companies as well as individuals. Our Criminal Defence & Internal Investigations team assists organisations and senior management when confronted with regulatory issues at the interface of criminal law and administrative enforcement. We distinguish ourselves by having a longstanding experience that ranges from legal advice and assistance during enforcement actions and internal investigations to representation and defence in court.
Hands on approach
Our specialists distinguish themselves by their knowledge and expertise and practical and hands on approach when a company's reputation is at risk or when strategic action is required in turbulent circumstances. The Criminal Defence & Internal Investigations team is 24/7 available for both minor and major issues and offers solution-oriented assistance. Our clients highly appreciate this.
The combination of experiences and expertise's within the team puts Van Doorne in a unique position with the ability to assist in a broad spectrum of both domestic as well as international criminal enforcement matters. The Criminal Defence & Internal Investigation team has a distinctive market profile - firm but easy to work with.
The enhancement of regulatory enforcement in the Dutch public domain and not-for-profit sector and Van Doorne's strong presence in these fields allow us to assist in high-end matters dealing with first of its kind issues. The team works on a fully integrated basis with the firm’s extremely strong civil litigation practice and the teams Dispute Resolution, Commercial and Insurance. This is key to providing substantive, joined-up legal assistance in areas such as asset recovery, civil fraud, accountancy and insurance, which are increasingly important in the context of white-collar crime. We have the same way of working in internal investigations and business conduct matters by providing full service and working closely together with our employment law and privacy law colleagues, as well as content matter experts.
We believe the truly integrated approach of the Criminal Defence & Internal Investigation practice within Van Doorne is unique.
