White Collar Crime

Our firm has developed a renowned expertise for cases linked to White collar crime. We advise our clients upfront on the strategy to adopt when facing risky situations, for instance when offences have been committed by employees or company officers/representatives.

We also advise and defend our clients for court proceedings before French criminal courts, especially for those putting the criminal liability of companies or their officers at stake.

Our lawyers use their knowledge of our client’s business to assist and vigorously defend them, especially for the following:

  • - Financial fraudulent schemes like the « fake wire transfer scheme » or “fake chairman scheme”,
  • - Offences within competition law, cartels, abuse of dominant position or abuse of economic dependence,
  • - Investigations by the French competition authorities and subsequent proceedings before French criminal courts,
  • - Employment law offences,
  • - Misuse of company assets, misuse of trust, active and passive corruption.
