Today, managers and entrepreneurs are increasingly confronted with investigations and criminal cases as the authorities are making further clarifications concerning copyrights in the Internet, matters of competition or cartel law, financial transactions or taxation as well as criminal responsibility as a director or as a board member. Our experience shows us that entrepreneurs often only have insufficient ideas regarding these proceedings. That’s why they may contribute unintentionally and needlessly to their prolongation or enlargement. We can help and represent you in these cases, if necessary also in the evening or at the weekend.
