We have a strong litigation team, handling all types of cases from administrative appeals to contentious tax procedures before the lower and appellate courts, Belgium’s Supreme Court (Hof van Cassatie/Cour de cassation) and the Netherlands Supreme Court (Hoge Raad), and for Belgium, the Constitutional Court.

An essential part of our approach is to collaborate with colleagues from other practice areas to provide coordinated tax advice. When combined with the wealth of international experience present in every office, we provide a truly integrated global tax capability.
