Tax disputes

Lubbers, Boer & Douma is successful in solving (pending) tax disputes. We speak and write with authority and are experts in procedural law. We are focused on solutions, we are not obstructive, and we speak in plain terms. This creates confidence among all parties concerned that a solution based on tax, substantive arguments is possible. We record solutions in a workable settlement agreement.

Should an agreement not be possible, we will litigate before the tax courts, respecting the respective positions of all parties. Due to our longstanding experience as deputy judges in the Court of Appeal and legal researchers at the Supreme Court of the Netherlands, we are uniquely qualified to understand the perspective of the persons deciding the case. We have represented clients successfully in all levels of legal proceedings, including the Court of Justice of the European Union and international arbitration. In cases with an EU law component we involve the European Commission where appropriate. Our specialist knowledge and proficiency in presenting cases, the burden of proof, technical expertise and cassation law have consistently proven to be crucial.

Our clients value our input, because we not only provide high quality content, but also keenly recognize the importance of procedural law and the strategic aspects of the case.

We not only litigate ourselves, but also offer support to tax consultants, tax lawyers and in-house tax specialists in connection with tax litigation in complex cases or cases involving a large financial interest. In this regard we contribute ideas about the optimal procedural strategy, give feedback on draft (procedural) documents, advise on whether evidence is relevant and should be submitted, writing elements of procedural documents and accompanying clients to court hearings.
