Criminal Business Law

An important aspect of life and business is the risk of criminal liability for actions taken by entrepreneurs and persons acting on their behalf. This applies not only to general obligations to take care of the property of managed legal persons (not to act to their detriment), but also to the recognition of specific orders and prohibitions concerning business activities in various sectors, resulting from private and public law.

Also entrepreneurs are bound by general principles of Criminal business law such as the presumption of innocence and economic freedom, especially in the sense that anything that is not legally prohibited is allowed. However, even in practice, even in the administration of justice, all too often there is “simplification” by applying the responsibility of entrepreneurs for the very effect of a business venture, regardless of whether or not the entrepreneur actually infringes economic law and regardless of whether or not such an infringement is the entrepreneur’s fault. In the practice of the Polish justice system, too often the basic directive that the commercial criminal law is of a subsidiary nature is omitted, and cannot be the basis for settling disputes and claims against entrepreneurs for whom civil and commercial courts have jurisdiction.

The specificity, difficulty and distinctiveness of criminal business law cases lies in the necessity to take into account and know many areas of law: criminal, commercial, administrative, civil and even international. Therefore, in our Law Firm, the rule is to conduct interdisciplinary and team defence in such cases.
