But also acting in conflict with the Flora and Fauna Act or the Soil Protection Act [Wet Bodembescherming] may lead to criminal prosecution. An unexpected visit from the Police may lead to a search, seizure and possibly a forced discontinuation of your company. The mere threat of it may cause great harm (also in terms of publicity). Because of their knowledge of administrative and criminal law the lawyers at PlasBossinade can be of service to you quickly and accurately. Apart from that the lawyers at PlasBossinade can advise you about the prevention of or the dealing with the publicity that sometimes goes hand in hand with these matters.
Economic and financial criminal law
The Economic Offence Act [Wet economische delicten] contains a growing number of stipulations by which numerous activities that are consciously or unconsciously performed by companies in the hectic daily life are declared punishable. Particularly in the sector of financial services the norms have been tightened and a violation of these norms more often than not involves criminal prosecution or the threat of it. An example is not possessing a permit pursuant to the Financial Supervision Act [Wet financieel toezicht] while acting as an insurance agent with power of attorney, possessing an incomplete permit, or deranging from the conditions set by the permit. Should you in this respect be confronted with an action of the authorities, it is good to know that at PlasBossinade there are lawyers who know what you can do. Or better refrain from doing.
