We represent companies and individuals in criminal proceedings, as defence or accusation attorneys. Our professionals provide services that encompass the entire criminal procedure, from the investigation phase all the way to the Superior Courts.

Criminal Law Legal Aid

The increasing criminalization of once regarded irrelevant conducts by Brazilian legislation made it necessary for companies to adapt themselves to a harsher corporate governance protocol.

CAZ identifies the company’s legal risk zones and recommends changes aiming to prevent the board’s and employees’ criminal liability.

CAZ values a discrete approach with strict confidentiality within the professional relationship, always keeping in mind the client’s reputation.

Compliance and internal investigation

Corporate internal investigations have become a relevant instrument for criminal responsibility inquiries regarding unlawful behaviour within the company. CAZ offers clients extensive know-how regarding complex cooperate investigations, using its criminal technical knowledge, as well as a dynamic methodology required in such investigations.
