Full-service support

Our assistance will not be limited to the defence during the court hearings but consists of intensive support during the entire process. This guidance preferably starts when a criminal investigation is considered. In the preliminary stages of the case, we advise you and inform you about what you can expect. We prepare you for the interrogations and make an inventory of the exculpatory material that is available. With this we can determine our strategy for the court hearings together.

A criminal case usually involves various (legal) aspects. Where necessary, we will be assisted by our specialists from other practice groups. As an example, we regularly call upon the assistance of our healthcare specialists, tax advisers, environmental experts and psychologists.
