Within an almost infinite number of special legislations, some rules regulate companies and their operations, and where violation of the law is potentially considered a criminal offence. This, among other things, applies to areas such as VAT, taxes and illegal corporate structures. Often, special authorities administer these rules.
This means that commercial criminal law is one of the broadest areas of criminal law and one of the most complicated. For example, it isn’t easy to know how to behave if the tax authorities and the police seize the entire bookkeeping material. It would be best if you allied yourself with a lawyer with extensive experience and specialization in such a complex area of law.
At Advokatgruppen, we have experts in commercial criminal law ready to help you.
Among other things, we have experience in handling cases regarding:

Working environment legislation
Today, you will find the rules on various requirements for the working environment in the working environment legislation. These rules must be observed in companies and on construction sites, and it can be crucial with advice from experts in this. At Advokatgruppen, we have skilled lawyers in Horsens, Aarhus and Fredericia. They can help you ensure that you comply with these rules so that your employees work under the right conditions.
Today, the environment is an essential parameter for the consumer, and therefore companies must have control over their environmental policy. In addition, there has been a significant focus on the environment on the part of the government. It is, therefore, crucial to have the right experts to advise your company on environmental rules and legislation, as today there are great demands on the operation of your company. At Advokatgruppen, we have extensive experience counselling individuals and companies in environmental law.
Agriculture and fishing
The regulation of agriculture and commercial fishing has been tightened in recent years. This means that you must now consider new options as to how to run and own your farm or fishery and how to operate your fishing business, as there are now stricter requirements regarding pollution, fishing quotas, feed, labelling and marketing. At Advokatgruppen, we embrace the entire legal spectrum within agriculture and fishing. We advise both large and small companies throughout their value chain – from the production of your raw materials to the marketing and protection of your rights.
Maritime and transport law
Transport of goods and passengers can take place in many ways, and today ships, trains, cars, planes and even bicycles are used when transporting things and people. It is, therefore, a good idea to have a skilled legal partner who can navigate your business safely through the waters of the many international conventions such as CISG, Incoterms and UCP 600.

Traffic and heavy goods and vehicles cases
Today, companies are increasingly imposed with complex sets of rules from both the Danish Parliament, administrative authorities and the EU, and these rules are often interpreted against common business sense. This often results in considerable fines, revocation of permits and disqualifications. At Advokatgruppen, we have unique knowledge of traffic and heavy goods and vehicles cases.
