INTELLECT's attorneys are aware better than anyone of the risks indirectly yet inherently associated with business: undue official interferences, unmotivated inspections and investigations, unfounded prescriptions and demands, groundless prosecutions, crime, and the risks of criminal liability related to tax, finance and contract defaults. This awareness underlies our firm's unique specialism — urgent legal assistance in emergencies at an early stage before supervisors' casual compliance-checking calls develop into full-blown investigations and indictments. Our specialist teams in Yekaterinburg, Moscow and other offices across Russia have a long and proud record of criminal defense of entrepreneurs involving indictments for business-related offences, crime and corruption, helping their clients take timely necessary measures to avoid or reduce the risks of criminal liability.
