BMT has decades of experience in these sensitive legal fields. We comprehensively advise our clients in matters of law relating to economic offences and the law on tax offences, and represent them before authorities, courts and public prosecution services. We also protect a company’s rights in criminal and monetary fine proceedings. In matters relating to economic or tax offences we represent individuals, but equally also companies, along with their governing bodies and/or their executive directors and senior managers. That is what BMT stands for: in-depth knowledge in law relating to economic and tax offences.
Proceedings concerning economic or tax offences
Preliminary investigations concerning economic or tax offences are often a nightmare for those concerned. It is important at that moment for you to obtain adept legal advice. BMT pursues the aim of averting as much economic damage or impending loss of reputation from you or your company as possible. In order to achieve this, we examine the circumstances underlying the criminal offence with which you are charged right down to the last detail, and rectify the accusations with the fiscal and criminal prosecution authorities. If search warrants and interrogations are involved, you can count on our competent assistance – whether you are a witness or the defendant.
Offences relating to property
When advising in the field of offences relating to property, often the charges of fraud, breach of trust and money laundering are involved, as these constitute typical commercial offences. Precise legal work is necessary in the case of such charges, in order to examine matters precisely, based on the individual constituent elements, to see whether the accusation can actually be justified and how such accusation can be refuted with verve. Our defence attorneys are familiar with the relevant judgements of the Federal Constitutional Court (Bundesverfassungsgericht = BVerfG) and the Federal Supreme Court (Bundesgerichtshof = BGH) in this respect, so that it is guaranteed that our clients receive the best advice possible, and that their rights are preserved in the criminal proceedings.
Also where charges of corruption have been put forward, we advise you comprehensively. This field requires expertise concerning bribery offences, in particular commercial bribery offences, and the economic background of a company. It is ensured, through the other specialist partners in the law firm, that the defence attorneys work on such cases hand in hand with experts such as public procurement law experts, and find appropriate solutions. BMT also has extensive knowledge of the prevention of corruption in the economy (“compliance”). In that regard, our defence attorneys ensure, through appropriate regulations, that no losses are incurred to the company. We also provide comprehensive advice in regard to charges of corruption abroad. Our defence lawyers also have a wealth of experience in this field.
Our defence attorneys provide advice in advance as well as during and after the company's crisis. In that respect, besides the classic insolvency offences, such as bankruptcy or delayed filing for insolvency (insolvency procrastination), the supplementary penal provisions are also to be observed, including the respective ramifications for the persons in charge in the companies concerned. Our defence counsels take care of the latter by collaborating in a team consisting of further partners of the law firm, and thereby preserving our client's rights.
