Compliance / White Collar Crime

We have extensive experience in corporate criminal law; Alexander Isola, David Seidl and their team have represented in various high-profile commercial criminal proceedings. We advise and represent domestic and foreign companies, institutions and individuals – frequently in cross-border issues. The focus of our commercial law advice lies in bankruptcy, accounting fraud, financial crime, breach of trust / embezzlement, corruption, and money laundering.

When a company finds itself in a crisis, the weeks before the decision as to whether the company will be able continue its operations without insolvency proceedings are especially sensitive for the company; not only with regard to liability and insolvency, but particularly with regard to criminal offences. Therefore, preventative advice is usually essential in such cases.

Business activities and the economic life are increasingly characterized by criminal law. The decision-makers of a company such as the management board members, the managers, the supervisory board members, and senior staff are increasingly confronted with questions concerning criminal law. They are subject to supervisory and organizational obligations and they risk becoming involved in criminal investigations.

We represent clients in all criminal matters before investigation authorities and courts – in an advisory capacity or as defense lawyers, often in cooperation with designated auditors. We work in cooperation with the prosecutor if the best possible defense of our clients requires it.
