Tax Criminal Law

Our specialization in tax criminal law stems from our outstanding expertise in domestic and international law.

Our advisors working in tax criminal law have been among the market leaders for many years, and represent one of the largest practice groups in this area.

For companies and their governing bodies, the potential risks of investigations into tax criminal offences or tax-related administrative offences have continued to rise in recent years. In addition, tax assessment districts are increasingly inclined to hand over cases in which objective misstatements may have been made to the criminal and administrative fine offices or the public prosecutor’s office. With respect to tax criminal law, the tax authorities are focusing increasingly on corporate enterprises.

We are experienced, knowledgeable and assertive when it comes to tax disputes and litigation. We dig deep into our clients’ tax structures, helping to identify potential risks early on. We also provide comprehensive assistance in establishing effective tax compliance systems.

In tax audits we offer both entrepreneurs and companies our expertise in tax criminal law. We advise clients on the proper voluntary disclosure of tax evasion, and represent them in tax investigations. At all stages of criminal proceedings – from investigations to the main hearing – our experts represent both individuals and companies in a decisive manner.

We focus on:

  • Coordinating extensive corporate defense
  • Asserting our clients’ interests during searches and seizures by investigating authorities, and the temporary protection of assets from confiscation
  • Assessing highly complex structures (foundations, trusts, corporate structures)

On request, we also travel to the client to work on confidential and challenging cross-border cases.
