Sanctions and asset freezes have unfortunately become more and more a means of political confrontation in recent years and by all political sides, also on the European continent. Malmendier Legal is committed to the right of every accused person to a fair trial under the rule of law in accordance with the principles of the European Convention on Human Rights, the Constitution of the European Union and the constitutions of the member and ratifying states, which must not be thwarted by political objectives or manipulation and tactics of the investigating bodies. Our law firm has no fears of contact resulting from the political mainstream and stands for the fundamental right to an effective defence of every accused person. Often, a paradigm shift in communication must be brought about for a successful defence. We use interdisciplinary approaches to represent clients before international organisations, the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights, the Court of Justice of the European Union and other courts, including media and political support work.
