Corporate Criminal Defense/White Collar Crime

A criminal act committed by a company’s officer or employee can have a devastating impact on the company—a sterling corporate reputation cultivated over many years can evaporate overnight. In these types of cases, from initial discovery of the criminal act to the conclusion of investigations and lawsuits, we advise clients from a medium to long term perspective by identifying critical factors that can affect a company’s very existence.

The impact of an employee’s criminal act on the employer is incalculable. Depending on the details of the criminal wrongdoing, not only the employee but also the company itself may be held criminally accountable. In addition, the media may give immense levels of coverage to any investigations and seizures by investigative authorities, causing the case to become widely known and making the company’s response to the crime the focus of public attention. Therefore, a company must take prompt and appropriate measures immediately after a crime is discovered. If the case involves a criminal act in a foreign jurisdiction, an appropriate response needs to take into account the handling of investigations and criminal procedures in the country concerned.

If an employee or company is indicted for a crime, expertise in handling sometimes lengthy court proceedings becomes crucial. In such cases, in order to minimize damage and quickly recover corporate value, it is important from the very outset of the case and throughout the proceedings to take appropriate measures that take into account the medium to long term future of the company. We are able to provide appropriate and extensive support with a team of lawyers who specialize in the practice of corporate criminal defense.
