Our Criminal Defence team assists and represents companies and individuals that are faced with multi-jurisdictional compliance and regulatory issues at the interface of criminal and administrative law.
We represent and advise companies in different industries with respect to all aspects of financial fraud, corruption, economic sanctions and anti-money laundering. We are specialized in assisting our clients in relation to environmental issues and industrial accidents (especially major accident hazards), which are considered economic (corporate) crimes. We have a ‘go-to’ litigation practice advising a wide range of companies and individuals when careers and futures are at risk: from board members to public figures (politicians and civil servants). We often represent professionals (such as lawyers, civil law notaries, tax advisors and accountants) in relation to ethical and financial supervisory issues. The team works closely together with the Disciplinary Proceedings team.
