Lisa van Esdonk-Bongaarts

“Knowledgeable & sociable”

Mr. L.M.S.M. (Lisa) van Esdonk-Bongaarts studied tax law at the University of Amsterdam and completed a post-master EFS (indirect taxation). Lisa has been working in tax advisory and litigation practice since 2006. As of 2014, she has focused entirely on the tax litigation practice.

Lisa: “I started my career as an attorney at Baker McKenzie, specializing in VAT. Since 2014, I have focused entirely on the tax litigation practice. I assist companies, entrepreneurs and individuals in (impending) conflicts with the tax authorities.

The dynamics between the tax content and the human aspect is what attracts me in the tax litigation practice. Although financial interests are the focal point, it is my experience that the impact of a (threatening) procedure on businesses and on a personal level (C-suite, DGAs, individuals) can be substantial. In those situations, the government often exerts enormous pressure on our clients. Whenever possible, I try to find an out-of-court solution. This not only requires much knowledge, but also good social skills to get different parties to reach a solution. If that fails, then we go to court.”
