Dr. Scharf advises companies and individuals of economic life on criminal matters and the repercussions in other jurisdictions that are often associated with them (e.g. civil liability, company law and professional law). His key areas of specialisation include the defence of individuals at all stages of criminal or administrative offence proceedings, as well as the management of complex defence tasks in extensive corporate defences.

In the field of civil corporate liability law, as well as in the area of liability of business leaders (such as directors and managers), Dr. Scharf has also been representing former or active company directors or business executives for years, both in and out of court, often in connection with concurrent criminal proceedings. He also frequently covers cross-border proceedings. In addition, he often works in the background, using his expertise to advise and support clients or companies on complex criminal law issues.
