At Bär & Karrer, our white-collar crime practice encompasses advice and representation in all areas of business crime, including fraud, money-laundering, corruption, disloyal management, organised insolvency, corporate criminal liability, blocking statutes, economic espionage and all aspects relating to the Swiss Anti Money Laundering regulations. We also regularly assist our clients in administrative criminal law matters, whether related to the financial sector, tax offences or breaches of the therapeutic products act.

We handle routine matters or complex, transnational investigations. From the outset, we engage our team according to the client’s needs, drawing on a pool of dedicated practitioners and specialists.

We act for corporations or individuals, whether they face investigation by the prosecuting authorities or are the victims of a criminal conduct. In the latter case, where appropriate, we focus our efforts on asset tracing/ freezing and recovery steps in order to achieve reparation.

We also have extensive experience in advising clients in cross-border matters, including mutual legal assistance and extradition proceedings. We work in coordination with a strong network of reputable and responsive correspondents in any key jurisdiction.
