Statues such as the Income Tax Act, Competition Act, Occupational Health and Safety Act and many others, govern the actions of corporations and business people of all stripes. When an individual, corporation, or the officers and directors of a company commits fraud, tax evasion, or some other form of regulatory, or “quasi-criminal”, offence, they face serious consequences including professional and financial repercussions, criminal charges and possible incarceration. Because the stakes are so high, it is imperative that you seek counsel from a capable criminal defence litigator who has a solid understanding of the other areas of law regulatory offences spill over into.
Shekter Dychtenberg LLP's litigators have widespread experience representing individuals and businesses charged with regulatory offences. They will negotiate with government agencies and investigators in an attempt to avoid charges, guide you in the event of search and seizure orders and, if necessary, vigorously defend you in court if charges cannot be avoided.
