DMKT began with the joining forces of attorneys Débora Motta and Karin Toscano Mielenhausen with the objective of offering the market a boutique criminal law practice.
In support of this concept, the founding partners, both with wide experience in corporate criminal law, personally engage in each case, rooting their representation in transparency and trust to strengthen the attorney-client relationship.
With the zealous advocacy that distinguishes our practice, each case in our care is
systematically monitored, with periodic reports to allow for the active participation of clients in the course of the proceedings.
Our method of operations has been designed to serve our natural person or corporate clients with excellence, either as the accused or as the victims of crime, regardless of the size of the claims. We act in the most agile and efficient means possible to safeguard the individual rights guaranteed to all our clients, most notably the right to an ample defense and the preservation of one’s public image.
In cases whose complexity extends beyond the criminal law sphere, our office seeks to work in collaboration with specialized professionals in other areas of the law, as having a wide spectrum of ideas is an essential tool for success in such cases.
Furthermore, access to a criminal law practice has become indispensable as the universe of laws, directives, and international treaties and conventions that must be followed has grown, necessitating mitigation of the risks arising from business activity. In this regard, our partners’ notable skill comes to the fore in the adoption of criminal compliance measures designed to identify and diminish areas of risk.
The joining of the dynamics of a modern work environment with the personalized service entailed in the concept of a boutique law firm is the defining mark of DMKT’s criminal practice.
Acting on behalf of the defense against accusations at all levels of government and the judiciary, including before the higher courts of appeal.
Compliance obligations have been incorporated into everyday business routines following the passage of the Anti-Corruption Act. We seek to aid businesses in these matters by offering them consulting in criminal law compliance and guiding their preventive actions regarding current penal legislation, including advice on decision making.
Both natural persons and companies may be the victims of crime. In this context, our office represents such victims in police investigations and in aid of any eventual prosecutions.
