Many medium-sized and large companies can find themselves confronted with situations with criminal law implications – whether as an injured party or as addressee of fine proceedings for misconduct by employees or management. We advise our clients in all areas of white-collar crime, providing both preventive services and assistance in ongoing criminal and fine proceedings. We assist our clients within the scope of corporate defence, protect their rights as injured parties and advance their interests in an efficient and professional manner. We conduct internal investigations both in Germany and abroad, and are known for our expertise in court as well as our experience in dealing with the relevant authorities.
Gleiss Lutz also covers the full range of criminal law compliance advice. We assess concrete or planned transactions, develop and optimise tailored compliance programmes and customised staff training sessions for companies to help them avoid investigations and to minimise the risk of fines. In M&A deals, we analyse and assess criminal law risks and potential fines and help avoid liability risks on the part of the legal successor.
