    to successfully pass by or negotiate

    'evade' would also do
    'circumvent' if you want a higher register

    @lilly: I don't think that "to undergo a law" is possible.

    your suggestions work as well lilly, albeit quite colloquial

    to work around the law ... is another way

    @Lorelei: Ein Schlupfloch in einem Gesetz bedeutet, es zu befolgen, aber nicht in dem Sinn, wie es eigentlich gedacht war. Ein Gesetz umgehen heißt, so vorgehen, dass man es nicht befolgen muss. Hier besteht ein feiner Unterschied.
