Criminal law

For more than fourty‐five years, the firm has been advising and representing clients on and in all matters of criminal law. From preventive counselling, criminal defence through to appeals, we offer skilled and practical support. The firm's criminal law practice was established by Hans Dahs Sr., one of the firm’s founders, who acquired a sterling reputation for his work as a criminal defence lawyer over the years. Apart from criminal defence work, the firm has recently seen its criminal law practice expand rapidly. The advice provided by the firm includes the implementation of compliance measures in undertakings, as well as the assessment of sensitive corporate processes or new business areas from a criminal law perspective. In this context, ongoing personal contact with our clients always has top priority.
