Criminal Law

Morales & Besa provides legal advice to natural (individuals) and legal persons (corporates) regarding economic crimes, tax, environmental, cybercrime, money laundering, violation of anti-corruption laws and infringements of intellectual property laws. We provide support for clients both accused of committing a crime, or who have been victims of a criminal offense.

If a person is a victim or has been charged with the commission of a crime, Morales & Besa will take on the defense of our clients’ interests, both in the prior investigation stage before the Ministerio Público and in the trial, known as Juicio Oral (oral trial), before the corresponding Courts with criminal jurisdiction.

Additionally, given the criminal liability that could fall on a legal entity, we advise companies and organizations through the design and implementation of crime prevention mechanisms, anti-corruption programs or policies, and self-regulation and review of due diligence processes, based on the activities of each client and the risks they represent.
