Lawyers specialized in criminal defense of the company

As criminal lawyers specialized in criminal defense of the company, at Forcam Abogados we cannot but insist on the importance of preventive criminal advice. And it is that the Penal Code admits the possibility of exempting companies that have fulfilled their duties in terms of prevention from criminal liability.

Precisely for this reason we offer criminal compliance programs for your company. But if you do not have one of these systems and your company has been the subject of a complaint or lawsuit, all is not lost yet. We can defend you in all criminal proceedings and trials to try to minimize or avoid conviction.

The criminal liability of the company

Article 31 bis of the Criminal Code allows companies to be criminally liable for crimes committed in their name or on their behalf and for their direct or indirect benefit.

Once the company (legal person) is convicted, the applicable penalties will involve the imposition of fines, closure of premises, suspension and prohibition of activities, disqualification from obtaining subsidies or aid or contracting with the public sector... However, probably the most serious penalties are judicial intervention and the dissolution of legal personality.

In other words, the attribution of criminal responsibility to the company can lead to its extinction. This is why it is essential for the company to have an office such as Forcam Abogados, specialized in criminal defense, through experienced criminal lawyers, who will help you solve the problem.

Prevention in matters of criminal liability of the company

In order for the company to be criminally liable, the Penal Code requires that the company does not have adequate means of prevention. Thus, this responsibility can be exempted provided that the company proves that it has an updated and effective corporate compliance program.

In summary, the adoption of compliance programs that comply with the structure and requirements outlined in the Criminal Code may be the best criminal defense for the company, exonerating it from its criminal responsibility, avoiding the corresponding convictions.
