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.

In order to prevent fines and prosecutions or mitigate the impact of a past transgression to reduce an imminent fine
(by showing good conduct after the incident), we support you in devising and installing appropriate systems with the following measures:

  • Handling instructions/Task or job descriptions (‘compliance guidelines’)
  • Effective implementation of such instructions
  • (Concrete) risk analysis (individual basis)
  • Exercise of due care (individual basis)
  • Monitoring and review of past issues
We also are pleased to offer on-site workshops and in-house training for your business.
