Professional support for financial criminal law

Defending against risks under financial criminal law and mounting a defense in proceedings involving offenses against tax laws require a high degree of specialisation and the relevant experience.

Our team is very experienced in assisting and supporting clients in difficult situations. We provide comprehensive advice so that risks pertaining to financial criminal law can be identified and prevented from the outset. However, if the risks have already materialised, we help you to manage the risks and will also represent you in proceedings. The experts at LeitnerLeitner possess the required specialised knowledge, the ability to find solutions and the required vision. Numerous national and international cases confirm our ability to bring proceedings involving offenses against tax laws to successful outcomes.

In this vein, our specialists benefit from years of practical experience as well as the latest research and state-of-the-art knowledge in this area. Accordingly, we can anticipate current developments at an early stage to develop innovative defense concepts.
