Are you accused of an economic crime or are you summoned for interrogation?

Economic criminal cases are considered the most difficult: to defend against charges, it is necessary to understand not only the laws, but also the production process, accounting and finance. After all, even ordinary transactions, the performance of ordinary official duties, under certain circumstances, can be regarded by law enforcement agencies as violations of the law. And given that the sanctions for such offenses are quite strict, it is necessary to take care of reliable protection.
