Within the Turkish Judicial System, criminal law is seen as a field of its own; therefore criminal law requires extensive knowledge. Criminal law shouldn’t be approached solely by Turkish Criminal Law as many articles within the Banking Law, Capital Markets Law and even in the Turkish Commercial Code include punitive sanctions.
In criminal law, punitive sanctions can appear as a result of acts committed by individuals which are considered as a crime within the law. Companies and company directors who adapt their commercial activities in accordance to the increase in commercial diversity, growth of commercial networks, new technological possibilities etc. can be both the perpetrator or the victim under criminal law. Primarily company activities need to be evaluated according to the risk criteria determined towards the possible results and audited within this framework.
Rather than focusing on criminal cases involving individuals, Şengün & Partners provides consultancy services on determining the risk factors that companies and directors may be exposed to within the scope of criminal law while providing legal protection. In this scope, the firm audits corporate activities subject to criminal law, provides legal protection for directors against possible criminal law investigations and by doing this minimizes serious risks regarding criminal law. Şengün & Partners provides assurance and consultancy services to many companies, especially finance companies, within this scope and has defended its clients in many important court cases.
