Our team also has considerable experience in all kinds of investigations related to cybercrime, and acts on behalf of legal entities that have been affected by this type of crime.
• International mutual legal assistance in criminal law. Our White Collar Crime and Investigations team specialises in international mutual legal assistance (MLA), and more specifically, in drafting letters rogatory in order to obtain evidence or testimonies or to freeze and recover stolen assets (Stolen Assets Recovery, StAR), as well as in extradition procedures and European arrest and surrender warrants. The Firm’s international outlook allows the team to employ their expertise in this field by regularly advising our foreign clients, both individuals and companies, who are involved in criminal procedures being carried out in Spain.
• Corporate Compliance and legal advice within the framework of M&A transactions. Our White Collar Crime and Investigations team advises companies of all sizes on creating or improving their internal procedure for the prevention and early detection of potential criminal irregularities, and on internal corporate investigation procedures. Within this field of law, the team advises foreign companies that need to adapt their internal procedures to comply with Spanish regulations in order to operate in Spain.
