International Criminal Law

Criminal law and the law of administrative sanctions are known for the often considerable penalties they induce, ranging from fines to prison sentences. Criminal liability can also result from everyday activities and business conduct. Financial penalties can be directly imposed on companies under German law. Compliance is thus increasingly relevant in commercial criminal law. In fact, businesses are expected to establish internal compliance guidelines in order to prevent violation of laws and regulations in the course of their everyday business conduct. Moreover, criminal law is increasingly shaped by international norms and should thus be approached as a supranational field.

With almost ten years of experience in international criminal law, I advise businesses, organizations, non-profits and individuals on the widest possible range of criminal law matters: From compliance, criminal defense and victim participation, to economic criminal law and international criminal law. I am committed to providing high-level professional expertise with cultural sensitivity and discretion.
