What is a commercial criminal law?
Commercial criminal law is one of the broadest areas of criminal law and (non-exhaustively) includes cases concerning:
- VAT, taxes and charges
- Share dividend
- Illegal corporate structures and loans to shareholders
As the accused, you typically need a lawyer from day one, who is specialised and experienced in this complex area of law. What do you do if the Danish Tax Agency and the police show up in front of your company and seize all the bookkeeping material, your assets, computers, cars, etc.? Is it even necessary, and do they have the right to do this? How should your business continue operations after the seizure?
We are one of the few law firms in Denmark that can fully help you with commercial criminal law.
What can the consequences be?
Complex sets of rules are increasingly being imposed on companies by the Danish parliament, administrative authorities, and the EU. The rules are often interpreted against common business sense and all too often entail considerable fines, withdrawal of permits, and disqualifications.
The authorities that monitor businesses have a large machinery consisting of lawyers and specialists. They expect companies as professionals to be fully aware of and in accordance with the relevant legislation. Documentation is often required on a large scale, regarding administrative rules.
If you are in doubt whether violations have been committed in your company, please contact us.
