Practice Recognition:

The criminal law practice at Gvozdiy & Oberkovych Law Firm was initiated in accord with the demand of the times and includes a whole range of services for corporate and private clients to address issues which involve criminal problems. The practice of providing legal assistance in criminal matters was created taking into account the realities of doing business in Ukraine and in order to provide the most complete service for the interests of clients, who already trusted our transaction experience and court practice.

The legal support of local and international business in Ukraine has recently been characterized by a marked increase in the role of criminal law and procedure. The interests of the state and business often intertwine, and officials use law-enforcement measures as a means of influencing entrepreneurs. In such cases, neutralizing this pressure with legal methods requires the joint efforts and expertise of both business lawyers and criminal practice lawyers.

Our practicing lawyers have both an excellent theoretical and practical background in supporting criminal investigations of various levels of complexity. In particular, they can ensure the development of tactics and strategies to protect the suspect, accused or defendant in criminal proceedings; preparation, presentation and support of lawsuits in criminal cases, collection of evidence, preparation of legal documents; appeals against the actions of state bodies and against convictions, etc.

Our practicing criminal law lawyers focus special attention on representing the interests of clients during investigation of crimes at work. The firm has demonstrated a deep understanding of different areas of law and business sectors for the effective protection of the interests of state officials, top managers and employees of private companies at all stages of appeal against unfounded accusations and investigation proceedings.

We have experience of defending the interests of “white collar” workers against allegations of involving allegations of bribery, misappropriation of funds, fraud, tax evasion, forgery, abuse of authority and other misconduct in their work. The assistance of our lawyers has often been used by the top managers of Ukrainian and foreign companies, financial institutions, and well-known businessmen and politicians.
