Our lawyers are at your service for an assessment of your legal situation, and to respond to any questions you may have regarding any criminal issues that might be involved.

For further information:

Criminal law is at the heart of Alphalex Avocats SA’s practice. With its dynamic and responsive structure, our firm takes charge of the entirety of a criminal case at any stage of the proceedings. Our lawyers deal with all aspects of criminal law, such as offences against assets, the integrity of individuals (violence and sexual acts), federal law regarding narcotics, as well as criminal offenses in the economic sphere. Under the leadership of Mr. Matthieu Genillod, with his more than fifteen years of law practise in this area, our firm has solid experience in complex criminal proceedings, particularly in cases involving allegations of economic crimes, representing clients in such proceedings before both the Vaud and federal authorities.

Our criminal law practise covers traffic incidents, such as the handling of vehicular accidents or driving license revocations, as well as compensation proceedings or relations with insurance companies.

In addition to representation of those charged or accused in a criminal lawsuit, our lawyers are involved in the care of victims and complainants with important local institutions such as the LAVI Centre, the Women’s Centre or the Malley Prairie Centre in Lausanne.

In view of both the personal and financial stakes and consequences of criminal proceedings, our lawyers’ priority is the building of a relationship of trust and direct involvement in such cases. Hence, they participate through the Vaud Bar Association in providing immediate legal assistance. Our lawyers are honoured to be on the list of criminal lawyers who are available to Prosecutors and Courts for acceptance of assignments. They are on the front line to defend their clients efficiently and with full dedication from the beginning of the proceedings.
