Experience and expertise in corporate criminal law

Horten has experience in all types of cases concerning violation of special legislation (financial regulation, working environment, environment, food control, etc.) and in relation to financial crime against companies or white-collar crime committed by a company's managers or employees.

Our expertise includes both activities directed against the company and activities carried out by the company itself. We assist with investigating potential criminal activities (bribery, embezzlement, etc.) and serve as defence counsel in case of charges being brought against companies or persons attached to the company (e.g. in tax cases).
This has mainly been cases concerning e.g. fraud, criminal breach of trust and other offences against property, tax fraud, price manipulation and insider trading, food legislation and other special legislation with serious sanctions. Our criminal lawyers conduct the various cases in cooperation with Horten's specialists within e.g. public regulation, banking and finance, tax law and employment and labour law.
