Criminal Law & Corporate Crime

In recent years, corporate/business crime law in Romania has significantly evolved against the background of intensified criminal investigation activities, and an increased number of cases under investigation combined with an increase in the complexity of the allegations subject to investigation.  Proper settlement of a criminal case often requires a multidisciplinary legal approach which goes beyond the substantive and procedural criminal law to include regulations in many other areas, such as taxation, competition, public procurement, management of EU funds, capital markets, financial services, etc. Țuca Zbârcea & Asociații draws on the skills and expertise of its lawyers specialized in such different areas of business law to provide complex legal assistance services to anyone bearing a legitimate interest in a criminal investigation or trial, irrespective their procedural standing.
