Business Criminal Litigation

Crime has existed since the dawn of time, but it is the last several years that the rising tide of penalization of to-date legally irrelevant behaviours is observed. This applies in particular to commercial activities. Nowadays, businesses face new challenges of providing services in a manner that is compliant with increasing regulations and minimizing the risk of liability, including criminal in nature.

Our experienced team offers litigation services, when such risks appear and when criminal investigations are commenced. We are a one-stop shop for both civil/business and criminal litigation and always prepare a tailormade strategy that encompass both these practices (if applicable) to best fit the needs of a given client. In addition to offering services with respect to business criminal litigation matters, we also represent clients in other criminal matters (e.g. car accidents, medical malpractice, etc.).
