Dr Lutz Nepomuck


  • Criminal law (business crimes)
  • Law relating to fiscal offences
  • Corporate compliance
  • Data protection law

Dr Nepomuck defends clients in all areas of corporate and fiscal criminal law. He also advises companies whose employees are involved in criminal matters, and defends such companies against sanctions such as financial penalties and revocations. Further, Dr Nepomuck represents companies who have suffered damage in criminal matters, also supporting civil law redress. His preventative advice includes the criminal law assessment of business models as well as the implementation and review of compliance systems. A particular key practice area is the implementation of audits including internal company investigations to prevent corruption, especially in international business.   

Another key practice area is the defence and advice of clients in breach of trust, corruption, agreements that restrict competition in tender procedures, (subsidy) fraud, environmental offences and industrial accidents. In the references to other areas of law that occur so frequently in corporate criminal law, swift and effective cooperation with other specialist lawyers in the firm from the relevant fields is guaranteed.
