Defense and representation of interests at the stage of pre-trial investigation

Pre-trial investigation is one of the stages of criminal procedure, during which a lot of important actions take place: 

  • carrying out investigative actions – these may include interrogations, search of premises, etc.; 
  • conducting covert investigative actions, such as wiretapping, access to correspondence, etc.; 
  • issuing notice of suspicion of committing a criminal offense, etc.

It is very important that at the stage of pre-trial investigation, the interests are represented by an experienced attorney, because the correctness and completeness of the collected evidence, which will later be used in court, depends on it

  The attorneys of VigoLex team provide a full range of services for the protection and representation of clients’ interests at the stage of pre-trial investigation. 

Representation of a suspect’s interests 

In the lifecycle of any business, interaction with regulatory and law enforcement agencies can occur, which may result in a criminal procedure. 

If you find yourself in the role of a suspect, the Constitution of Ukraine and the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine grant you the right to get professional legal assistance and to engage an attorney to defend your rights. 

At the pre-trial investigation stage, you cannot be considered an accused – only a suspect
