We are seeing an increasing focus on the number and intensity of the criminal-law sanctions imposed on companies and their responsible officers. Companies currently have to adopt a position on complex regulatory frameworks, therefore, including criminal indictments or charges directed at employees, managers or the company itself. This applies in particular to anti-corruption, laundering and corporate crime in the wider sense.

Amongst other things, we advise our clients on anti-laundering regulations, anti-corruption rules, export bans and embargo rules in international trading, company law bans in relation to illegal self-financing and insolvency law issues, including the rules concerning fraudulent preference, wilful mismanagement and fraud.
