Compliance and Commercial Criminal Law

Today, a functioning compliance system is the basis for ensuring that the increasingly complex legal requirements and ethical guidelines of large companies can be implemented. Our team supports your company as well as its bodies (supervisory boards, advisory boards, management boards, shareholders and managing directors) – providing comprehensive advise, (preventive, processing and further development) in compliance-related questions and problems. We develop, complete and implement your compliance management system and thus create an efficient control system to reduce risks for your company and the bodies themselves.

Due to our interdisciplinary team of specialized and experienced lawyers and in cooperation with tax consultants and auditors, we offer comprehensive solutions in all legal areas relevant to your company.

Another focus of our activities in criminal law is the individual representation and defense of companies and entrepreneurs as well as the individual.

Our clients benefit from our extensive experience from a large number of successfully conducted investigations and main proceedings, combined with legal know-how and a high degree of specialization in a variety of areas.
