Criminal Law


LGP is dedicated to providing expert legal representation in criminal law. We have a team of skilled and experienced criminal defense attorneys who are committed to protecting the rights and freedoms of our clients.

Famous criminal cases have made us well-known in Austria and abroad: Cases such as law firm founder Gerald Ganzger's representation of the kidnap victim Natascha Kampusch or the representation of the victims and relatives of the Gletscherbahnen Kaprun funicular accident and the proceedings surrounding the mining disaster at Lassing.

Law firm founder Gabriel Lansky has been active in the field of criminal law since the 1980s and has provided economic and criminal law advice in major cases involving the federal state insurance company (Bundesländerversicherung) and the so-called "gold coin scandal".

In addition to the representation of victims of crime and accidents, important proceedings under commercial criminal law, such as the Lucona case or the proceedings surrounding the investment fraud in connection with the Medici Bank, were conducted with the participation of LGP. Attorney Helena Marko played a key role in the aquittals in the Multiversum trial on alleged subsidy fraud. Numerous successful proceedings before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in connection with criminal proceedings in Austria round off our profile.

We offer our clients personalized attention and compassionate support throughout the legal process. We will work closely with you to understand your unique circumstances and develop a strategic defense plan tailored to your specific case.

The need for advice in criminal law is subject to constant change: currently, private individuals as well as companies are confronted with a tightening of criminal law norms and an increase in surveillance by the authorities. At the same time, an internationalisation of (economic) crime can be observed. We do justice to the increase in complexity of criminal law by pursuing a cross-thematic advisory approach.

We achieve this by means of a unique team composed of experienced defence lawyers, former judges and public prosecutors as well as academics who work together with us to solve legal problems.
