Corporate Criminal Law
Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001 – Workplace prevention, safety and accidents
Corporate Criminal Law Firm Italy – Criminal law increasingly permeates business activity, not only with the aim of repressing unlawful conduct but also to dictate “guidelines” and behaviours through a complex system of rules. Compliance with those rules, as well as preventing disputes of criminal nature, constitutes good practice to be able to improve the organisation and efficiency of the business with beneficial economic implications.
With increasing frequency, the law requires and demands that the company actively attempts to prevent crimes, both of malicious nature (e.g. crimes in relation to the Public Administration, bribery, money laundering, tax violations) and of involuntary nature (e.g. violation in relation to workplace prevention and safety, in relation to the environment) having for that purpose issued specific rules such as Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001.
In that context, IBL Network’s lawyers provide assistance to help companies and individuals in delicate decisions, thanks to a relationship of constant consultancy and support. They are also able to perform effective defensive activity in those cases where the company or those operating on its behalf are, unfortunately, subject to criminal proceedings or criminal-administrative proceedings such as those in relation to workplace accidents or environmental protection.
