Liability of entities and legal persons pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/01

Legislative Decree 231/2001 is a highly innovative legal prerequisite in Italian legislation for allocating and assigning criminal sanctions. In fact, the “principle of full responsibility” (administrative/criminal) of entities and legal persons for offences by natural persons who, in performing their respective duties, are operating in the same entity was introduced.

SLM – Studio Legale Monticelli, aware of the specific nature of the activity requested from the relevant professional in this area, provides procedural assistance for those involved and creates, as a precautionary measure, organizational models designed to avoid the penalization of these offences for as long as possible and remove or mitigate the liability of the entity.
