Commercial criminal law white collar crime

Commercial criminal law is gaining ever more importance both in the context of criminal prosecution, as well as in the practice of criminal defence.

Both offences from core areas of criminal law, as well as secondary offences, can be assigned to commercial criminal law as a special aspect of criminal law. Whilst commercial criminal law is not defined at law per se, the “classical” criminal law offences perceived as “commercial” are corruption, embezzlement, fraud, insolvency misdemeanours and tax evasion offences. The expertise of LIVONIUS Rechtsanwälte also embraces relevant topics such as misrepresentation in financial reporting, capital market criminal law, environmental criminal law, criminal product law, and antitrust violations, as well as foreign trade and tariff law.
