LGP Competence Centre for Criminal Law

Spectacular criminal cases have raised our profile in Austria and abroad: The support rendered by Gerald Ganzger to kidnapping victim Natascha Kampusch or the representation of the victims and relatives of the fire disaster on the Kaprun glacier cableways and the proceedings concerning the mining disaster in Lassing.
In addition to representing the victims of crime and disasters, LGP has from the outset been involved in significant commercial criminal law proceedings, such as the Lucona case or the proceedings concerning the investment fraud connected to the Medici bank. Since the 1980s, the firm's founder, Gabriel Lansky, has been active in the field of criminal law and has provided commercial criminal law advice for important cases concerning the Federal Insurance Group and the so-called "Gold coin scandal". Our profile is additionally rounded off by numerous cases in connection with criminal proceedings in Austria, successfully managed before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

The need for advice on criminal law is subject to constant change: private individuals and companies are currently witnessing a tightening of criminal law standards and a strengthening of official supervision. At the same time, (economic) criminality is becoming more international. We will do justice to the increase in the complexity of criminal law by pursuing an advisory approach that covers all topics.

We are able to achieve this through the unique composition of our team: We have experienced defence lawyers, former judges and state prosecutors, as well as scientists working together with us on solving legal problems.
