Together we are always one step ahead

Criminal Law

Criminal law is one of UGB’s key practice areas. We advise clients primarily on economic crime matters, where we can utilize our tax law specialization. Our lawyers, however, are also experienced in handling matters concerning property, violence or drug crime, European arrest warrants, and eaves dropping, and we also focus on the criminal liability of legal persons.

In the context of criminal proceedings, we provide clients with legal assistance from the first moment when performing urgent and unrepeatable acts before initiating prosecution and during the preliminary investigation, we further defend the charged or the accused, including advising on the matters of custody and provision of guarantees replacing custody, and we also represent the injured in claiming damages in adhesion proceedings.

We further provide legal advice in submitting crime commission reports, requests for conditional release of a convicted person, for pardon, for deletion of conviction from criminal records and for a certification decision, compensation of persons injured by violent crimes and, last but not least, we create and implement criminal law compliance programs for our clients, including proposing anti-money laundering and terrorist financing measures.
