Criminal law & fraud

Criminal law is becoming increasingly important in our society, both for individuals and businesses. The same applies to fraud and the fight against it. This requires a customized approach.

 

Our dedicated criminal law team provides advice and assistance regarding criminal investigations and litigation, sentence implementation and penal mediation. We also handle appeals in cassation and proceedings before the European Court of Human Rights.

 

Not only individuals suspected of or prosecuted for criminal offences, but also victims of these acts can rely on our assistance. This also applies to companies or institutions.

 

Because our office is well versed in other legal subject areas besides criminal law, we are able to assist our clients in almost all aspects of criminal law which are related to other fields of law such as traffic law, social law, tax law and corporate law, to name but a few.

 

We offer our clients proactive advice on the implementation of a prevention policy in order to avoid criminal risks.
