• Criminal Law

    AEQUO ADVOCATS has a department specializing in the defense of the client in any criminal procedure, both as prosecution and defense, with remarkable expertise in matters of Economic Criminal Law.

    It also has a Company Criminal Department which provides continuous criminal advice to the company, covering all their needs, whether it is in matters where the company has been harmed by a criminal action for which they are called to court, or as private prosecutor defending the interests of the company and claim for damages suffered, and in cases where the company, its board of directors, management or business administration have been charged.

    Similarly, AEQUO ADVOCATS offers its customers the possibility of having preventive criminal advice for their company. This means having the opportunity to establish a protocol in order to neutralize potential criminal risks typical of business activities by implementing the so-called "Compliance Program", that is, Crime Prevention Plan, whose content aims to provide the greatest possible legal safety to the company, given the criminal liability of juridical persons currently in force in the Spanish legal system.
