Your criminal liability
The criminal liability of directors is a complex legal matter and can be an obstacle to a company’s development. It also poses a real risk for directors, since they can be fined or even imprisoned, thereby forfeiting their civil and family rights.

Due to the incredible complexity of business legislation, VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM has set up multidisciplinary teams to respond in a concerted manner to both purely criminal matters and those related to the issue in question, whether it concern tax, social security, commerce, or town and county planning, for example.
Both at the advisory and litigation phase, VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM is on hand to offer their support and expertise. Lawsuits are especially complex, and the experience of VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM constitutes a real asset in criminal proceedings.
