Italian Economic criminal law
Economic criminal law includes offences related to economic activity or against economic interests.
The above include criminal measures against the most serious cases with regard to corporate, financial and commercial operations.
The measures above can be imposed both on companies and on people acting in its name (the so-called white collars crime).
Unlike offences against the individual (such as, for instance, injuries), where the perpetrator is aware of the questionability of his/her own actions, in the event of economic offences, the criminal aspect is often not perceived.
Due to constant developments in the business community and changes in legislation, the risk of committing economic offences is high.
Such issue is even more significant for foreign investors, who operate in a completely new context, where laws are different from their countries of origin, while facing language and culture barriers.
In particular, assistance as regards environmental, corporate and tax criminal law, as well as with criminal law relating to liability of legal bodies (Legislative Decree n 231/2001), is provided.
