Criminal Tax Law: Defence Services

The field of criminal tax law is a matter which requires professional legal counsel. A conviction of tax evasion or other tax criminal offences can lead to severe consequences in the shape of fines and prison sentences. The exact sanction faced will depend on the facts of the matter. However, even the mere prospect of an accusation of tax evasion can be distressing for private individuals. Knowing how to respond is vital in these cases. If you find yourself in a situation where you have come under suspicion of tax evasion, you may face the prospect of a house search or office search. Once again, this is a distressing process as this action is an infringement on your rights unless carried out correctly.

Our lawyers will provide you with in-court representation if required. Where possible, we will aim to resolve matters outside of court due to the financial and time costs involved. However, it is sometimes not possible to resolve such matters outside of court. For in-court cases, we will work together to create a suitable strategy and seek to achieve a successful outcome in your case.

Customs Law in Germany

At Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte, our German custom lawyers will support you in appeals of decisions made by German customs officials. Our lawyers will examine the likelihood of a successful claim against customs, assist you in filing formal objections against the customs authorities, with due consideration to the deadlines and formalities involved, carefully prepare for the examination of the appeal, including preparing for the opponent’s arguments and represent you in court.

Appealing against customs decisions following consulting with a German customs lawyer is often advisable, as customs officials can make mistakes with the classification of goods and the setting of customs duties. Should the application of the request be correct, customs will conduct a comprehensive review of their decision. A successful decision at this level can prevent costly legal disputes in the German courts.

Our lawyers advise on cases concerning alleged customs criminal offences, smuggling and border seizures.
