As a criminal defense lawyer, Dr. Johannes Makepeace advises, represents, and defends his clients in complex criminal law and white collar cases. With conviction, he pursues the goal of providing a competent defense to his clients facing criminal proceedings with serious consequences, often threatening their very existence, in order to achieve the best possible result.

"Criminal defense means one hundred percent commitment to the rights of the accused – without compromise."

After pursuing a doctorate degree in criminal procedural law (summa cum laude) and teaching criminal law at the University of Regensburg, Johannes Makepeace worked as a lawyer, inter alia, for an international corporate law firm, advising German and international clients and businesses on white collar crime, high-stakes internal investigations, and complex compliance issues.

In 2023, Johannes Makepeace founded "Makepeace Strafverteidigung" to provide his clients with a modern, robust, and best-possible defense, focusing on general criminal law, white collar and tax criminal defense.

Johannes Makepeace advises his clients in all phases of criminal proceedings: from the first interrogations and dawn raids in the preliminary proceedings, through the main hearings and the appeal proceedings, to the particularly stressful situation caused by (pre-trial) detention.

Thanks to his US-American roots, Johannes Makepeace advises his clients in German or English.
