Together with colleagues from other areas of specialty he assists in introducing compliance systems, as required by law or otherwise commensurate with the exposure to risks of a client’s business.

Mr. Hilgert also advises on all aspects of other commercial and fiscal criminal law, including the defense in criminal corruption proceedings and, in close cooperation with our competition lawyers, also in criminal competition proceedings.

The defense is carried out during disciplinary preliminary investigations as well as in negotiations before the service courts, including the defense before the Federal Administrative Court, in close coordination with our administrative law department, in order not to neglect the often far-reaching consequences and effects under civil service law.
