Business-related penal law (White collar crime)

Are you under suspicion of white collar crime? White collar crime is any crime connected to business operations. Examples include insider trading, disloyalty to principal, bribery, accounting fraud, tax crime and violation of the Work Environment Act.

As a business person, you often become aware that an investigation is taking place only when the investigator performs a raid, usually very early in the morning, through a search of the premises. Company representatives and/or employees are interrogated and any electronic materials and other written documentation are impounded. The investigation may have been ongoing for a long time before that, without your knowledge.

White collar crime cases are often highly intricate due to the amount of documentation and the complexity of the matters at hand.
