For this reason, we advise and represent not only business but also managing directors, board members, and supervisory boards in all relevant areas of commercial law in Italy and on all questions of criminal corporation law, criminal insolvency law and criminal company law.
Especially in criminal company law, foreign businesses must be aware of a particularity of Italian commercial law: in Italy, businesses and corporations can be criminally liable – in addition to criminal liability among the persons involved (Legislative Decree 231 / 2001) if provisions were not made in corresponding organisational models. As such criminal liability can entail significant implications (fines, revocation of licences, etc.), we pay special attention to this issue when providing businesses with (criminal) commercial law advice.
Owing to our expertise in European / international tax law, international and Italian criminal tax law is also a significant part of our work. We provide you with strategic advice, for example with respect to the possibility and usefulness of a voluntary declaration in the case of impending criminal tax law proceedings. We of course represent our clients in proceedings before the tax and financial authorities, as well, either in parallel with criminal proceedings or completely independently thereof.
