Criminal Law

Our criminal law team at Legalizalos boasts a very high degree of expertise and a wealth of professional experience in defending the interests of both individuals and legal entities alike. We primarily identify the problems and needs of our clients, with the view of offering them the best litigation strategy in that particular case, including legal advice during the pre-litigation phase.

Our criminal law consultants specialise in crimes committed in a wide range of areas and also call on the support and advise of experts from other practice areas based on previous precedents if deemed necessary. Our Lawyers can also advise on and arrange proceedings for extradition to and from Spain.

We currently defend our clients’ interests against a particularly challenging backdrop. As far as corporate crime is concerned, 2011 the revised and reformed Criminal Code was implemented following the introduction of Organic Law 5/2010, of June 22, 2010, and, in particular, by the new provisions on the criminal liability of legal entities. In light of the unexpected impact of these changes on Spain’s corporate landscape, we analyse and raise awareness of the possible implications of these new laws, providing advice on its regulatory compliance.
