White Collar Crime

The White Collar Crime Department of BROSETA is both directly focused on the prevention of criminal risks in the world of business and entrepreneurship, as well as on the advice and defense of those who are affected or involved in conduct penalised in this area.

The firm is specialised in the sector, which has been traditionally called white collar crime, in which a considerable increase in the criminalisation of conduct has occurred.

The criminalisation of much conduct that may occur in the development of economic activities, if special care is not taken, requires action such as specialised advice, and where appropriate, legal intervention.

To do this, BROSETA has a multidisciplinary team of specialists with extensive litigation experience in criminal law and in other legal branches, integrated knowledge which is essential for the best defense of the interests of our clients, to meet the global demands derived from criminal business law. Members of the team in the Economic Crime Department have been involved in numerous proceedings in the National court, the Supreme Court and, in general, in the courts and tribunals throughout the Spanish territory.
