Escritório de Advocacia Criminal SP

Specialized in corporate criminal law, our office offers both litigation and consulting services on behalf of individuals and companies, as representatives for the defense and for those seeking charges to be brought.

We work with proceedings initiated in a variety of spheres: law enforcement (police inquiries), public prosecution (Public Ministry criminal investigations), and legislative branch (parliamentary select investigatory committees [CPIs]) matters, both before the State and Federal courts and before the higher courts of appeal (High Court of Justice [STJ] and Federal Supreme Court [STF])

In addition, we offer guidance regarding the use of preventive criminal law measures through the adoption of policies designed to identify and reduce liability risks, strengthen internal controls, and monitor ordinary

operations, all towards mitigating the harmful consequences that the commission of an offence in an organization’s area of operations may entail.

DMKT’s criminal law practice also extends to guidance for companies in decision making procedures, with a view towards Brazilian penal legislation, as well as investigative assistance in private prosecutions seeking to uncover the any crimes that may have been committed.
