Misappropriation / Embezzlement / Financial fraud
A conventional reality is that due to economic globalization and development of corporate structures, transactions between connected parties or even business partners has become sophisticated and complex. Legal construction of representation in misappropriation or fraud cases depends on approaches to private or business transactions. This means that defence in misappropriation or fraud cases requires use of all available instruments under criminal law or deriving from enactments regulating corporate law and asset transactions. Our experience dictates that successful application of civil and financial law concepts in criminal procedure defeats the intent of the prosecution to prove criminal offences. When a case is converted from the impact of criminal sanctions to civil law litigation, the potential consequences are much easier to absorb. We have expertise in exploiting concepts from relevant areas of law in criminal procedure to prove absence of criminality.
