The most serious criminal cases include fraudulent accounting, private commercial bribery, illicit influence on shareholders’ meetings: in other words, these are offences which relate to corporate bodies as outlined by civil law. By virtue of this close connection with the life of corporations, it is therefore an extremely sensitive area, also due to any repercussions on the same legal person, which can be held accountable for an administrative offence resulting from a crime (see art. 25 ter of legislative decree 231/2001).
Dealing with the criminal implications of entrepreneurial activity implies, first and foremost, a careful reading of the business and regulatory context in which the corporate activity is carried out. In fact, disputes over alleged corporate crimes are often part of complex corporate transactions or entail the correct accounting and financial reconstruction of the context within which they are put in place. Therefore, it is crucial to understand any civil and commercial law aspects thoroughly, as these may affect the interpretation of criminal law.
