Questioning in criminal proceedings: a guide for businesses and business employees

Clients often consult us when they or their employees are summoned for questioning. In many cases, they do not know why they have been summoned. They ask how they can find out what the case is about, how questioning is conducted, and what are their rights and obligations. They are unsure whether an attorney can or should be present during questioning, and have concerns regarding confidentiality (business secrets, attorney-client privilege).

This guide discusses the rights of people when being questioned, and the obligations they have in connection with being questioned.
