WELCOME

Sebastian Sevenich

Thank you for visiting this website.
Here you will find more information about my law office and the legal services I provide.

With a specialization on Criminal Law, Criminal Compliance and CSR issues I designed my law practice with an emphasis on Spain and Spanish speaking countries in South America such as Paraguay, Argentina and Chile. While my hometown is Hamburg (Germany) I practice law nationwide since I was admitted to the Bar Council in April 2007.

After I started to run my own law office as a criminal defense attorney in 2009 my focus turned more and more on backing up corporate compliance and white collar criminal defense.

Due to an increasing responsibility for ethical and social concerns in a globalized economy the implementation of CSR policies and practices within a corporation brings a broader perspective to my legal counselling.

By offering special legal expertise through a constantly growing network of independent lawyers, I counsel a variety of companies and sophisticated individuals in business and litigation issues. A complex civil litigation experience extends to contract disputes, real estate and construction disputes - rounding up a profile of practice areas which serves the needs of my clients.

I greatly value your trust and confidence and look forward to hearing from you.
