Our criminal enforcement & compliance team focuses on criminal law and regulatory measures in the context of business activities. The team advises and assists public and private entities as well as individuals during the different stages of criminal and regulatory investigations, whether as a victim or as a suspect.
Companies are increasingly targeted by such investigations, which commonly involve unannounced raids followed by seizures and interviews by the police or administrative authorities. Our team offers compliance advice to limit the risk of finding oneself in such a situation, drafts dawn raid guidelines and provides training in order to be well-prepared for a dawn raid. We regularly provide on-site assistance during house searches or searches of corporate premises, focusing on smooth cooperation while securing your rights. This includes, for instance, the protection of privileged documents and avoiding excessive seizures of documents, goods or assets.
