The objective of the analysis is to make acquainted the professionals and also the lay audience, in view of the professional activity they are performing, with this topic that may be of their interest, and to inform them about the issues our Law Office has recently encountered in its practice.
The analysis indicates that persons who, by the nature of their profession, may find themselves in situations similar to those found by clients defended by JPM in these proceedings, as members of the management of large companies, without having been involved in any illicit activity, found themselves in a more than the serious situation and have a capacity of the defendants in the criminal proceedings.
In both cases defended are charged with perpetration of the acts that can in no way represent the criminal offenses they are charged with, for which actions sanction of imprisonment up to ten years is envisaged, and are facing the uncertain outcome of the cases conducted against them in both these cases.
We hope that this analysis will contribute to a better understanding of the complexity of criminal proceedings related to environmental crimes.
