ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS CRIMINAL LAW - CORPORATE DEFENSE

The Firm advises members, directors and executives of companies and private and public corporations under the so-called Economic Criminal Law, so that policies are adopted for the prevention of criminal risks that can arise from economic activity. To this end, MDA Advocats provides consultations, prepares legal opinions and organizes internal training activities aimed at those most responsible for the legal entities, with the aim of avoiding to be required to respond to criminal and property violations in the future and to be held accountable for the lack of sufficient prevention in relation to its activity or, where appropriate, to minimize the effects of any possible liability. Preventing the commitment of a criminal offence is the best solution from our perspective.
