Since being admitted to the Netherlands Bar Association in 2005, I have built a solid reputation in the field of Criminal Tax Law and Tax Dispute Law (Tax Litigation). I guide my clients through the ‘mine fields’ of Criminal, Confiscation and/or Tax procedures for the best result with the least stress.
In 2021 I started my own law firm together with Marloes Lammers: HuygenLammers Advocaten. From this brand new – ladies only – law firm I will continue my law practice.
The field of Criminal Tax Law is closely linked with (other) criminal charges of White Collar Crime, such as money laundering and forgery. White collar crime cases also often are accompanied by Criminal Confiscation. Although in criminal tax cases the main rule is that confiscation cannot take place, this can in practice lead to fierce procedures against confiscations. When called upon, I work together with Tax Advisors and/or other Criminal Defense Lawyers.
I have extensive experience in providing legal aid in cases that concern either one of these fields, in particular in the area of tension between both fields. This regards tax fraud cases that can either be dealt with by imposing an administrative fine or with a criminal prosecution, at the discretion of the public prosecutor.
Also, criminal (white collar crime, tax fraud and other) cases can have severe tax consequences that are important to keep in mind and take possible countermeasures against. You can in this respect think of (1) tax assessments regarding profits that are or will be (criminal) confiscated and (2) after a conviction becomes final, taxation of costs regarding criminally earned profits that previously could be deducted, for five years calculating backwards from that final conviction.
