Paul van Jaarsveld
P.Th. (Paul) van Jaarsveld studied law at Groningen University. In 2000, while still a student, he became a senior court clerk at the Court of Appeal in Leeuwarden, where he focused exclusively on criminal cases.
After that instructive time - during which he made a brief excursion to the Groningen District Court (for one year) - he became a lawyer in Groningen in 2007. He soon realised that criminal law also continued to attract him in that capacity. In the meantime, he has built up a broad practice with special expertise in the field of life and non-life crimes, various forms of fraud, money laundering, financial-economic crimes, fiscal criminal law, drug-related crimes and sexual offences.
In 2022 he joined Meijers Canatan Advocaten to serve his clients from the Groningen office.
Mr Van Jaarsveld has entered into a partnership with Meijers Canatan Advocaten LLP pursuant to Article 5.3 under b Voda. The contract for services is entered into with Meijers Canatan Advocaten LLP.
