Criminal law (general)
Meijers Canatan Advocaten's criminal lawyers focus entirely on national and international criminal practice. In addition to the general criminal practice, the cassation practice and the international practice in particular are practised at a high level. The firm handles many so-called mega cases. These include, for example: murder and manslaughter, criminal organisations, fraud, moral cases, kidnapping and hostage-taking, skimming, violence, trafficking in women and human beings. Our lawyers have the necessary experience in publicity sensitive cases.
Where necessary, we cooperate with other (foreign) lawyers or call in experts. The legal-theoretical background also receives a great deal of attention. In addition, the lawyers are active in various national and international associations, such as the Dutch Association of Defence Counsel and the European Criminal Bar Association. Clients include not only citizens who come into contact with criminal law, but also companies and institutions. Clients can be served in Dutch, English, French, German, Spanish and Hebrew.
Within criminal law, we practise the following specialisms in particular: International Criminal Law, ECHR procedures, Deprivation, Cassation and Juvenile Justice. You can also contact us for assistance in VOG proceedings.
