Criminal Law, Administrative Sanctions, Compliance and Internal Investigations

CS'Associados offers a comprehensive advisory service focused on the specific regulatory requirements of the different sectors of activity.

Both in the prevention of illegal practices - through the promotion and implementation of compliance policies - and in the monitoring of sanctioning processes in their different phases, in close collaboration with all the practice areas.

The team monitors cases before national and international courts (such as the Court of Auditors, the Constitutional Court and the European Court of Human Rights), administrative authorities (such as the Securities Market Commission, the Bank of Portugal, the Competition Authority, the Insurance and Pension Funds Supervisory Authority, the General Inspectorate of Agriculture, Maritime, Environment and Spatial Planning) and parliamentary enquiry committees, as well as supporting negotiations in the pre- and post-litigation phases.

CS'Associados also advises in cases where our knowledge and experience can help our clients in the investigation and defence of cases, in particular in internal investigations in any company or sector and in national and international sports sanctioning proceedings.
