Criminal law covers everything; from small misdemeanours, to big heinous crimes, fraud and white-collar crime.

It can also involve international relations and multiple jurisdictional rules, particularly concerning issues such as extradition, money-laundering, cross-border crimes and terrorism.

Typically, work is of a contentious nature.

What makes a good criminal lawyer?

To be a criminal lawyer, you should be street-smart, quick on your feet and have a thorough understanding of criminal law, procedures and the functioning of the judicial system.

You should also be able to handle large volumes of work and perform well under pressure, whilst retaining a meticulous attention to detail.

Your communication and negotiation skills need to be top-notch and you should be good at dealing with different kinds of people. You will need to get accustomed to working long and unconventional hours.

Many clients a criminal lawyer might deal with could be dangerous, mentally unstable, drug addicts, or chronic offenders; it’s crucial to set aside personal prejudices and judgment, taking an objective and clinical approach in handling people.

Crime, by its very nature, carries a lot of notoriety and ill-will, so it’s important for a lawyer to maintain absolute discretion when it comes to dealing with their clients.

Honesty and trustworthiness are of paramount importance and the same goes for anyone else who works within this area of law, from reporters and court clerks to legal secretaries and administrators.

Claude Nicati

Mr. Claude Nicati was born on March 10, 1957. He is married, has three children and is a grandfather, and has been living since 1990 in the canton of Neuchâtel.

After university studies in Lausanne, then a training of lawyer in the canton of Bern, he held positions of manager and magistrate in the whole chain of the criminal investigation and is thus able to advise usefully the persons involved, in whatever capacity, in a proceeding.

His work in the Neuchâtel court for more than four years allows him to know practically what are the difficulties and what are the demands placed on the magistrate so that a file can be sent to court. This experience is precious today.

At the level of the Confederation, in his capacity as Deputy Prosecutor General, he headed for eight years teams of federal prosecutors in charge of the fight against serious international crime (organized crime, money laundering, terrorism, etc.). ). He personally also conducted sensitive investigations in these areas and supported the prosecution in the Federal Criminal Court (TPF). These activities have opened many doors to him internationally, still very useful today.

He still had the privilege, within the military justice, to be successively judge of instruction, auditor (prosecutor) then president of court. He was in charge of the only war crimes cases tried in Switzerland. This experience is rare and profitable.

Finally, the four-year term he has served as State Counselor of the Republic and Canton of Neuchâtel in charge of the Territory Management Department (DGT, currently DDTE) is also an asset. During this term, he had the privilege of chairing the Conference of Directors of Transport of Western Switzerland (CTSO) and the Council of Public Authorities of EOS Holding.

He is also the author of two publications related to his previous activities as a prosecutor.
