White-Collar Crime and Corruption Law

Professional support is essential in complex white-collar crime cases. Thanks to our many years of experience, we have a network of highly qualified experts in the areas of business, law and finance, which ensures representation tailored to individual needs.

Criminal law and Penal System

When it comes to personal freedom, there are no compromises. We support you starting with the first investigative action to the appeal process and beyond, in the context of retrials, renewal applications or complaints to the ECHR, as well as applications for conditional dismissal or electronic ankle monitor, you can count on us.

Association Responsibility, Compliance and Administrative Criminal Proceedings

Illegal behavior by employees can have unpleasant consequences for the company. We support you in dealing with problematic cases, represent your company in the process and help avoid loss of reputation. As a certified compliance officer, our partner helps expand preventive measures and offers trainings and guidelines for your employees.

Our many years of experience and cooperation with IT forensic experts and lawyers in Austria and abroad are a guarantee for an effective defense. The analysis and presentation of technical aspects of a case, as well as the consideration of current domestic and foreign case law, are incorporated into our defense strategy and thus enable a complete and promising defense.

Extradition Law

The time factor plays a decisive role in extradition cases. We have the necessary know-how and a network of experts, which enables us to obtain important information about the legal and factual situation in the requesting state within a very short time.

Juvenile Penal Law and Proceedings Concerning Defendants and Detainees with Intellectual and/or Psychosocial Disabilities

Young people and people with intellectual and/or psychosocial disabilities are particularly vulnerable people. In addition to a high level of professional expertise, your defense also requires the ability to respond to your specific needs and problems; Collaboration with youth work specialists as well as psychologists and psychotherapists is an important asset here.
