ECKSTEIN | KOLLEGEN
Where experience meets competence
We are a Munich-based law firm specialising exclusively in criminal law, with particular expertise in commercial criminal law and tax offences, as well as in compliance and internal investigations, both nationally and internationally.
Law firm ECKSTEIN & KOLLEGEN from Munich has decades of experience in dealing with all law enforcement agencies and criminal courts at all levels. For many years, we have been one of Germany’s leading law firms in the areas of criminal law, commercial criminal law and criminal tax law, thanks to our particular expertise and professionalism. This is confirmed year after year in the trade press rankings.
All lawyers in the firm practise exclusively in criminal law. We advise and represent individuals as well as companies in any procedural situation. We offer excellent legal knowledge, commercial understanding, strategic skills and absolute discretion. Our objective is to develop solution-oriented defence strategies that are tailored to our clients and their specific procedural situation.
ECKSTEIN & KOLLEGEN is active in all areas of criminal law. Our many years of experience have led to specialization in particular areas of activity, including commercial criminal law in every form and criminal tax law. We also clarify criminal law issues in companies and provide preventive advice in the context of compliance investigations. All the firm’s criminal defence lawyers and employees are specially trained and qualified for this purpose. We ensure this through professional training and continuous education of our criminal defence lawyers.
A criminal investigation places a particular burden on the individual concerned and their relatives, as well as on the companies affected. Due to our many years of experience in all areas of criminal law, we are very familiar with the specifics of these investigations. We take into account the constantly changing criminal laws and related case law.
We also consider it in our task to take into account the necessary side effects of criminal proceedings in other areas of law (labour law, professional law, tax law, etc.) by consulting experienced colleagues from the corresponding legal areas. We can draw on a large circle of trustworthy, competent and experienced consultants.
Another aspect of ECKSTEIN & KOLLEGEN‘s work in Munich, in addition to defence counsel, is the counselling and representation of witnesses as witness assistance. This applies equally to commercial criminal proceedings and internal investigations. Based on the experience gained in the context of individual and corporate defence, any risks that may arise for witnesses in the course of their examination can be identified and assessed at an early stage. This regularly flows into prompt advice to the represented witness, in particular with regard to any rights to information and refusal to testify.
