Criminal Law and Litigation


Tonucci & Partners is one of the first large Italian law firms to form a practice group specialized in Criminal Law and Litigation. Our criminal litigators assist and advise Clients, whether individuals or corporations, in assessing and reducing criminal risks specifically connected with their business activities. In case of litigation, our criminal litigators act as defence counsel in criminal proceedings.

We advise corporations, corporate executives, officers and employees on white collar crimes and represent Clients in a full range of criminal proceedings, regarding e.g. corporate crimes; bankruptcy crimes; environmental crimes; occupational health and safety crimes; crimes against industry and commerce; food safety crimes; frauds; crimes against property in general, including money laundering, corruption, extortion of money by public officers; crimes against public administration in general; crimes against the public faith, including crimes involving false statements; and cyber crimes.

We also assist and represent Clients in medical malpractice, privacy and defamation cases.

We have acquired a notable experience in representing Clients who are victims of crimes. Additionally, we assists and represent Clients in bringing civil claims within criminal proceedings.

We have significant experience in conducting defensive investigations to the benefit of people under investigation and victims of crimes. When necessary, we retain well known experts and detectives, who closely act in coordination with and under the supervision of our criminal professionals. We have conducted defensive investigations for high profile cases including airplane accidents, grave car accidents, cyber crimes, environmental crimes, white collar crimes, medical malpractice, stalking and violence against people in general, including minors. We also have specific expertise in crimes relating to the international trade of artwork.

The professionals of the Criminal Law and Litigation practice group regularly work in coordination with other members of our Firm specializing in Banking and Finance, Tax and Employment law. We form joint defence teams for complex criminal cases.

In cross-border cases we work together with foreign attorneys. We are able to assist and represent Clients in transnational cases thanks to the international networks joined by Tonucci & Partners.

Our professionals are also experienced in the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) procedure and in precautionary measures to be enforced abroad.
