Compliance und Unternehmenshaftungsrecht

COMPLIANCE AND COMPANY LIABILITY LAW

Commercial transactions are subject to a complex legal framework.

During commercial transactions, companies and their bodies are required to comply with a vast number of complex rules. This situation has been compounded by efforts to create uniform legal bases for trade across Europe. If a company violates these rules, this often results in hefty fines and other financial losses, which are also likely to cause reputational damage. Criminal investigations against both the company itself as well as against its executive bodies are also extremely likely.
We help companies to prevent such situations from arising by assisting them in creating and enhancing their compliance systems. And, should the worst happen, we are there to support them through investigations and court proceedings.
Since we also specialise in corporate criminal law, we are well placed to expertly develop interdisciplinary strategies to defend companies in all relevant areas of the law.
We also help our clients to communicate professionally with all stakeholders.
We have already demonstrated our skills in some of the highest-profile proceedings in the history of German commercial law.
