One of the key areas of our Litigation Department is the Criminal Law practice. It has been developing since the early years of our activity and has grown to be a sound referential in the legal market and for Romania’s business elite. Our clients can rely on our bold and creative thinking to solve their most complex challenges, involving Criminal Law risks and implications. Throughout the years we have proven able to produce the right team for our clients – one as convincing in the boardroom as in the courtroom.
Our lawyers’ experience ranges from representation in lower courts up to the High Court of Cassation and Justice, as well as in the Constitutional Court, and extends to national and international courts, but also to all levels of Prosecutors’ Offices (spanning from ordinary courts to the High Court of Cassation and Justice, including the specialized divisions – National Anticorruption Directorate and Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism). Most of our cases have involved highly complex situations, including voluminous documentation and heavy research work. We cooperate closely with our clients (most of which are multinational corporations and large local companies or prominent business men) to understand their needs, before recommending the right solutions.
Our work in the Criminal Law field has implied acting on behalf of or alongside our clients in all types of disputes, including: white-collar crime, financial fraud, corruption, economic espionage, cyber- and e-Commerce crime, organized crime, abuse of power and negligence in official positions, money laundering, criminal breaches of confidentiality/secrecy, intellectual and industrial property criminal infringements, etc. We have provided legal assistance and representation both during criminal investigation proceedings and throughout criminal trials, in matters referring to the criminal liability of natural persons, as well as of legal entities.
Our services include consultancy and prevention of criminal law matters (such as preparing legal analyses, opinions or memoranda on different criminal law and criminal procedural law issues; assisting and representing our clients in different extrajudicial procedures, in order to avoid criminal implications or complex risks; preparing and concluding high-profile civil transactions, to amicably settle civil damages claims within criminal law procedures) and also representation and assistance in criminal litigations (during the criminal investigation phase or the court trial).
