There are a range of proceedings whose aim is the deprivation of property, from allegedly criminal (extended confiscation), to other forms of illegal conduct, complementary to administrative contraventions, and to unjustified wealth (pursued by the tax authorities or the special committees for the control of wealth).
Our attorneys master the whole range of judicial strategies and defences in order to avoid miscarriages of justice, which are common in this field, due to the deficient legal framework, the novelty of the procedures and the prevalence of investigative means of the state authorities.
