Due to the increasing density of regulations in commercial law, the broad interpretation of various criminal offenses and the associated criminalization of various business practices, the number of white-collar crime proceedings is growing continuously. At the same time, law enforcement agencies are cooperating more and more intensively.
We defend individuals and companies involved in criminal proceedings and administrative proceedings (such as those before FINMA) in the area of white-collar crime. This includes offenses and categories such as, in particular, fraud, unfaithful business management, corruption, money laundering, criminal banking and capital market law, industrial espionage, insider trading and stock exchange offenses, cybercrime, bankruptcy offenses, and corporate criminal law.
We conduct internal corporate investigations on behalf of our clients to uncover and assess possible wrongdoing.
For victims of crimes, we file criminal complaints and we assist clients in exercising their procedural rights and enforcing their claims, including through procedures for tracing, freezing and recovering the proceeds of domestic and cross-border financial crimes (asset tracing, asset freezing and asset recovery).
Our law firm has many years of experience in the field of international legal assistance in criminal matters or administrative assistance in tax matters. This involves protecting the rights of domestic and foreign persons vis-à-vis the authorities involved, e.g. in connection with extradition, account freezing, threatened asset confiscation, requests for information or file redactions.
LANTER Attorneys & Tax Advisors was ranked as one of the top Swiss law firms in white-collar crime law in 2021 by Bilanz and Le Temps magazines.
