Corporate Criminal Law

and 231

In addition to the legal representation of directors and employees of private companies, public entities and public companies for public prosecutions and other offences related to the exercise of their duties, MDA provides assistance and advice to companies called upon to respond to the alleged offences in relation to Legislative Decree no. 231/2001.

In order to verify compliance with the rules in the key areas of business (corporate obligations, labour relations, bankruptcy and insolvency procedures, trademarks and patents, competition and corporate image, public and private contracts, relations with public administration, public safety and the integrity of the individual, property and heritage, protection of the economy, anti-money laundering and privacy), MDA has developed organizational models in compliance with Legislative Decree no. 231/2001, operating within the supervisory body; and provides legal advice to ensure legislative compliance with all of a company's records and documents.

To this end, it also performs preventive checks of business acts (deliberations of corporate bodies, special procurements, documentation and declarations for tenders, authorisations and registrations), business arrangements and procedures (due diligence and consistency of the organisation charts with the standards and the jurisprudence guidelines, also in conjunction with the other business areas), the conditions for achieving the legality rating and the inclusion in the “white lists” of the Prefectures.

MDA also assists companies in the legal aspects of ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 37001 (anti-corruption) certifications.
