General Criminal Cases

Organized Crime

A client of the YL Avocats law firm is suspected of participating in a criminal conspiracy with the intent to prepare an assassination. The facts are strongly contested, and the case is highly sensitive. The law firm represents the individual from the beginning of their custody.

YL Avocats decides to file a motion for a change of venue (dépaysement) at the outset of the judicial investigation due to the particularities of the case. The change of venue is approved by the Court of Cassation. Subsequently, the client is eventually released.

After significant defense work during the investigative phase – including multiple requests for actions, motions to nullify procedures, challenging the transcription of phone wiretaps by investigators, hearings, and confrontations – a request for dismissal is made by the prosecution and definitively confirmed by the investigating judge.
