COMPLIANCE AND PROSECUTIONS
We represent businesses and their employees in administrative offence proceedings as well as preliminary investigations and in-court proceedings, bringing in external criminal law specialists for support if necessary. Additionally, we help businesses to systematically minimise or, in the best cases, eliminate the possibility of their employees committing prosecutable offences with effective compliance systems.
‘Compliance’ is a well-known buzzword that indicates an organisational system that ensures adherence to legal standards and internal company rules. Such (organisational) systems to date include ‘QA’ (Quality Assurance) and risk evaluation or product safety – the latter two referring especially to the methodical assessment of risks and enactment of subsequent control measures such as product recalls.
