FERRERE provides all services that corporate clients and executives require in its specialized Economic Criminal Law practice group. It files complaints and handles criminal defense, accompanying its clients at all process stages. Each client is provided the greatest assurance and fullest information regarding their situation. When circumstances so require, the group teams up with other professionals, in Uruguay or abroad, both in coordinating criminal strategy and in supporting strategies already defined.

The team advises persons involved in difficult circumstances, and also small and large companies and banking institutions, and local and foreign investor groups making queries or who have been victims of fraud.

For many years the team has participated decisively in large-scale cases before organized crime courts. It has proven to be highly effective in asset laundering cases, an area of Criminal Law that demands particular expertise.

The members of the group have done specific post-graduate work, are professors of Criminal Law at the University of the Republic of Uruguay, and periodically are involved in technical congresses and seminars, both in Uruguay and the region as well as in the Northern Hemisphere.
