Our substantive focus is the defense of white collar, business and tax crime cases. We defend and counsel individual and corporate clients at all stages of criminal and regulatory investigations and prosecutions.
White collar matters are very often complex, legally and in scope, and involve multiple targets and jurisdictions. We therefore work as a team, often with colleagues from other firms across Germany and internationally. Our broad and reliable network of attorneys, tax advisers and auditors permits us to assemble the perfect team of advisers for each individual case.
We can draw from our broad experience in international matters. Our partners belong to the leading firms in their respective jurisdictions. Many white collar cases today have a transnational dimension. Most German companies’ business expands well beyond national borders. Defense lawyers therefore need reliable and strong international partners.
The collateral risks associated with a criminal case are critical, too, especially the potential exposure for professional or civil liability, and media coverage detrimental to a client’s reputation. We work hand in hand with expert partners in managing these related issues.
