Criminal defence

Our core competence is criminal defence. We defend individuals and organise enterprise defence against criminal charges in all stages of investigation or criminal proceedings.

We work with you to develop an appropriate defence strategy for your individual case. We have extensive experience in dealing with investigating authorities and the courts adequately.

We give you advice if an investigation procedure is initiated against you, assist you in the event that a search of your premises is conducted and take care of the release of confiscated property. Our ongoing objective is to conclude the proceedings as quickly, discreetly and with as few negative consequences as possible. We also argue for you at trials or appeal procedures.

Another service that we offer is the support of companies and those in charge there in lawsuits directed against them. The support of such mandates presents additional challenges compared to “classical” criminal defence. We are in the position to handle substantial proceedings efficiently and in a targeted way. If necessary, we can draw on a network of other competent colleagues, experts, investigators and communication advisors.

In our activities, we always take the economic implications for the affected party into account. If required, we organise an interim management, for example, and consult you in communication matters with business partners and the press.
