CORPORATE DEFENSE

The criminal defence of the legal entity, and its directors, constitute a major concern in the new conception of criminal law. Corporate crime is usually associated with the activity of a corporation which has recognized legal capacity and is in relation to the responsibility of the legal entity which presents specific problems of legal-criminal accusation.

Criminal risk assessment, analysis of financial transactions and the issuance of opinion on the prevention of criminal activities are tasks now indispensable for the proper management of the company. The preventive protection against corporate criminal liability (Criminal Compliance) is one of the most innovative aspects of the current criminal policy.
