The field of criminal law and administrative penal law is constantly expanding and increasing in complexity. Regulations concerning criminal penalties and administrative fines cover all aspects of life relating to social, business and employment issues down to the smallest details. There have never been as many prohibitions as there are today, and (potential) offences have never been so aggressively prosecuted. This includes the establishment of specialised public prosecution offices and special units in the criminal police offices of the Länder as well as major raids, mass seizures, arrests and sensational trials.
However, criminal law should always only be the last resort on the part of the state. As defence counsel in criminal cases it is our task to ensure that this constitutional principle is observed in practice. We are aware of this responsibility in each individual case, because every investigation can have serious professional, personal and financial consequences – and lead to erroneous results. We want to protect you from this.
Criminal defence is and will remain our core area of expertise. We provide defence counsel in all stages of the proceedings, beginning with the investigation, continuing through trial defence and appeals, up to, if necessary, the execution of the sentence.
We also provide witness counsel and sometimes represent joint plaintiffs. We act as corporate lawyers in criminal cases involving economic offences and provide legal advice on criminal law.
With our many years of experience, uncompromising specialisation, and ability to bring together staff resources, we are able to dedicate ourselves to every client with the highest level of professionalism and reliability.
