We are Hertoghs advocaten

For the worst case the best scenario

We leap to your defence

If you’re suspected of fraud, government agencies will track you down.
And they know no mercy.

If you’ve reached an impasse in your talks with the tax authorities or you’re suspected of fraud − and definitely if the Public Prosecution Service is hot on your heels − what you need most of all is a safe haven, a place where you can tell your side of the story and where someone takes immediate action to protect your private and business interests. At Hertoghs, you can count on our unparalleled expertise and an intrinsic drive to defend your case.

Grandmasters at two-level chess

Where procedural tax law and criminal law intersect

Our area of expertise lies where procedural tax law and criminal law intersect. We chose this combined specialisation three decades ago and have since become first class in our field in the Netherlands. While the majority of cases we take on concern fraud, a dispute can also be purely tax-related. Most of the time, however, they involve both fields, and that’s exactly when our attorneys are at their best.

When the Public Prosecution Service is hot on your heels, what you need most is a safe haven.

How we can help

Our expertise

Your private and professional life is deeply affected by a fraud accusation, even before you’ve been found guilty of anything. That’s why a fraud case is always urgent. And why you’ll want to rely on a firm that specialises in both criminal law and procedural tax law. Hertoghs

Our attorneys apply the four-eye principle

The best conceivable defence

Achieving the best possible result in court can take years. Our strategy can alternate between being aggressive and playing the soft card. This can be tough on clients, especially if they feel wronged and the walls are closing in. But you can trust us; we know what we’re doing. We always work in teams. We apply the four-eye principle; for attorneys this is unique: every document is reviewed by at least two people. Also among colleagues, we tend to criticise each other’s views. All the expertise we have at the firm culminates in the best conceivable defence.
