If the subject concerns financial-economic criminal proceedings, Rosa van Zijl will often make the difference. With relentless energy she works through the paperwork from the Public Prosecution Service or the Fiscal Intelligence and Investigation Service, in search of an incorrect assumption or an accusation that cannot be proven. However, she is also characterized by her in-depth manner of handling general cases. She can be distinguished in the courtroom by way of her strongly formulated documents and the calmness with which she, especially in complex financial cases, infallibly maintains an overview and directs matters toward the best possible result in a focused manner. The boundless energy with which she embraces cases is fed by her idealism: everyone is entitled to the best defense.
Rosa van Zijl is associated as a lecturer with the professional training course for lawyers of the Netherlands Bar Association. Furthermore, Rosa van Zijl is a member of the Advisory Committee on Criminal Law of the Netherlands Bar Association, which comments on all national legislative proposals concerning criminal law. She is co-author of the SDU Commentary on Criminal Law. She is a member of the Dutch Association of Criminal Lawyers, of the European Criminal Bar Association and was chairperson of the Dutch Association of Young Criminal Lawyers in 2013-2014.
Cliënt’s comments on Rosa: “From a legal point of view, Rosa is a true expert, but equally important is the fact that she is so in tune with all human aspects of a case. Rosa is tenacious in her legal work, while at the same time she is filled with enormous empathy towards her clients. (…) She is simply extremely good at her work. (…) Rosa indeed commits herself to her clients for more than 100%.”
