Our Firm’s criminal department provides national and international clients with a range of services, from counselling on criminal compliance to prevent legal entities from committing crimes to defending and representing our clients before the Courts of Law.
D. José Antonio Martín Pallín, former Prosecutor and Judge of the Criminal Division of the Supreme Court of Spain, is the head of this department.
We provide a completely customised service throughout the entire Spanish territory.
Our way of thinking, the highly-regarded professionals that form this team, our dedication to our clients and the results achieved have set a new benchmark in the Spanish market of criminal legal aid.
In addition, our firm often collaborates with prime Law firms worldwide in the counselling of companies on transactions of international significance.
We help our clients to assess their criminal risks as well as to develop, review and implement measures to prevent them.
New laws, the evolution and internationalisation of companies and developments in Criminal Law call for implementing legal compliance programs to prevent companies from incurring criminal liabilities.
Analysing and identifying criminal risks, as well as implementing measures to prevent, mitigate and manage such risks are basic measures to lessen the criminal liability of legal entities, their officers and employees.
