Our Practice Areas
Business Criminal Law/Compliance
Our firm employs a team that specializes in Business Criminal Law and Compliance. It is made up of attorneys and advisors with a vast knowledge of the structures of business liability, rules of regulated industries and defense strategies for providing companies with a comprehensive defense against criminal charges that may affect them.
The services we offer our clients —both individuals and legal entities— include all fields of practical specialization of the Economic Criminal Law, from proceedings, such as charges or defense, to the creation of compliance programs and criminal due diligence.
The global and current trend holds the companies criminally accountable as a result of the crimes committed by private individuals working, without limitation, as administrators, legal representatives, directors, and presidents. And more specifically the lack of due monitoring these people should have been subject to in their respective fields of activity.
Therefore, we support our clients in the design and deployment of compliance programs (protocol for effective actions of prevention and crime detection) in order to eliminate or reduce risks which may result in criminal penalties and, as a consequence, act diligently to contain such risks. This is a program to detect risks for the company both from actions arising from their hierarchical positions and from the employees of such company.
