- Law Firm
We advise you on all questions arising in general criminal law, white-collar criminal law, the law governing regulatory offences / administrative criminal law, ancillary criminal law and road traffic law and will be pleased to work with you to develop forward-looking strategies for the best possible course of action. Both in the context of criminal defence as well as when analysing a case for private plaintiffs or injured parties (victims of crime), we carefully weigh the range of possible approaches and evaluate the optimum strategies.
In connection with white-collar crimes (fraud, criminal mismanagement, failure of accounting, insider trading, forgery of documents, tax evasion and tax fraud, money laundering, etc.), our criminal law attorneys and coporate law attorneys advice you or your company carefully and comprehensively. Where desired, we will prepare risk analyses for you, develop internal control systems (ICS) and draft internal rules of procedure (including corporate codes of conduct, etc.).
As criminal defence attorneys, we provide you with competent support at all stages of the criminal proceedings. We analyse in detail the criminal offences alleged against you and work out with you the most promising course of action, with a view to handling issues regarding testimony and the further procedural steps. We are your liaison for criminal prosecution authorities and the courts, and remain focussed at all times on optimally safeguarding your interests. We will accompany you to interrogations and court appearances, draft the necessary written submissions for you and act as your advocates during court hearings.
If you, as an injured person or victim, are affected by a criminal offence, we will analyse the situation with you from the perspective of criminal law and criminal procedure. We provide you with legal support in deciding whether to file a criminal complaint, an application for an indictment or a private plaintiff's action, and, where appropriate, we will prepare the necessary submissions in this regard. In criminal proceedings, we represent you as a private claimant (civil claimant and/or private plaintiff in criminal proceedings) in dealings with law enforcement authorities and the courts.
Our attorneys represent your rights comprehensively in out-of-court negotiations, in the context of criminal investigations as well as in criminal proceedings before the courts in Lucerne and throughout Switzerland. Whether as private plaintiff's counsel or as criminal defence lawyers, we support you with our substantive expertise and personal dedication in all phases of criminal proceedings.
