We advise and defend individual and institutional clients at all stages of criminal and regulatory investigations and proceedings. Our goal is always to resolve a criminal investigation as quickly as possible and with minimal disruption and public attention to our clients. However, we have many years of forensic experience and the expertise to vigorously defend our clients at trial should it become necessary. We also handle criminal appeals.
German criminal law is principally based upon the liability of individuals. However, corporate wrongdoing and liability are receiving increasing attention from German investigators and law makers in recent years. While, therefore, the representation of individuals has traditionally been the focus of criminal defense work, advising corporate clients has become a significant part of our practice.
Our substantive focus is on white collar, business and tax crimes.
We excel in cross-border cases, especially cases with a nexus to the United States. Dr. Rosskopf can draw from her broad experience as a litigator at two leading New York law firms. She represented and advised major German multinational corporations and their officers in large-scale securities litigation, internal investigations and investigations by the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice. Very often, those cases involved proceedings on both sides of the Atlantic.
