General criminal and business law

A member of the UN since 1993 and of the Council of Europe since 2004, Monaco has agreed to submit its domestic law to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations and the European Convention on Human Rights, as well as various additional Protocols.

Criminal business law in the Principality has also seen a significant legislative expansion, as illustrated by laws on anti-money laundering, terrorist financing and corruption, as well as trading in influence, breach of trust, fraud and concealment or handling of stolen goods. New offences have also been created, mainly linked to cybercrime.

An alternate member representing the Principality of Monaco on the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance, Alexis Marquet is an Avocat-Défenseur[1] who works to defend individual and fundamental freedoms.

Whether the client is themself accused of a criminal offence, or a party suing for damages in criminal proceedings, expert knowledge of national and international criminal procedure is essential to a quality defence.

[1] avocat défenseur is a senior lawyer with authority to represent the parties and to plead before any court.
