„This is where we can assist you“

Traditional criminal defence

We focus on the defence of individuals. In doing so, our defence strategies always focus on the fastest possible settlement of proceedings. Our work is based on personal commitment, a consistent approach to the investigative authorities, many years’ professional experience and outstanding legal expertise.


Representation of companies

For companies, our aim is to ensure the consequences of any investigative proceedings are as minor as possible and to avoid reputational damage. KOLLMANN, WOLM Attorneys at Law ensure that companies are represented effectively.


Preventive counselling on criminal law

KOLLMANN, WOLM Attorneys at Law advise conglomerates and SMEs in the preparation and implementation of criminal law compliance programmes and offer employees training in this respect.


Internal investigations

If applicable, we clarify issues of relevance to criminal law in the company independently of government investigations, carry out employee interviews and prepare expositions of the facts for the investigating authorities. We also represent employees affected by investigative measures of this kind.
