Criminal Law: Economic Crimes
No business, no matter how large it may be and no matter what industry it operates in, is immune from the claims of any government authorities, employees' bad faith, or the risk of criminal liability on charges of violations related to finance, taxes, failure to fulfill contractual obligations, etc.
In case of such problems arising, it is important to use the services of our lawyers available in Yekaterinburg, Moscow, Sankt Petersburg and other cities where INTELLECT is present as soon as possible – as early as at the stage of a pre-investigation check, i.e. before the initiation of criminal proceedings. A professional having long-term experience of protecting the interests of entrepreneurs in criminal cases of economic or corruption nature will help you take the necessary measures which will lower the risks of being possibly charged with a criminal offense.
The qualified legal assistance provided by Dmitry Zagainov, an attorney-at-law who heads the practice of INTELLECT Law Firm dealing with the criminal-legal protection for business, has more than once been useful to entrepreneurs and businessmen who found themselves in a difficult situation. And if the owners or executives of companies seek the assistance of an attorney-at-law in a timely manner, it is often possible to avoid the initiation of criminal proceedings. There have only been four exceptions to this rule over the entire time of his legal practice since 1999.
