ABOUT THIS PRACTICE AREA | SERVICE
It is not rare for banks and financial institutions to come into conflict with the Dutch financial criminal law. They are confronted with a complicated legal framework of laws, recommendations, guidelines and suchlike and are regularly under criminal investigation due to a violation of these rules. Allegations of offences under the Dutch financial criminal law may concern the use of insider knowledge of IPOs or secondary share offerings, prospectus fraud, or other acts that are punishable under the financial supervision law.
Causa Finalis Law Firm has a great deal of expertise to offer adequate legal assistance within the Dutch Criminal Tax Law. We assist suspects during questioning by the Fiscal Intelligence and Investigation Service (FIOD), the Dutch Central Bank (DNB), the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM), the Financial Supervision Office (BFT), provide support during searches, maintain contact with these authorities and the public prosecutor and seek possibilities to close the criminal prosecution, preferably without having to go to trial.
