Freezing Injunction / Seizure of Assets

Legal protection against freezing injunctions in criminal proceedings for tax fraud

The investigative authorities have improved their competencies in the area of seizures by continuous internal education, which led to an increased number of freezing injunctions being issued in taxation and corruption proceedings. Due to the complexity of the applicable laws, taxpayers are usually helpless against enforcement measures taken on the basis of a freezing injunction, which threatens to ruin their existence. Efficient assistance by an expert in criminal tax law is recommended in these cases. In these emergency situations, your attorney /tax law specialist / tax adviser in Cologne offers to

  • advise the taxpayer in respect of his legal situation and possible options,
  • quickly apply to the court for respective judicial relief, if required,
  • assert liability claims against the authorities in cases where the enforcement was unlawful.
