Lisa van Esdonk-Bongaarts

“Expert & social”

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

It is the dynamic between the tax content and the human aspect that attracts me in the tax litigation practice. Because although financial interests are central, my experience is that the impact of a (threatening) procedure on businesses and on a personal level (C-suite, DGAs, individuals) is great. Indeed, in those situations, the government often exerts enormous pressure on our clients. Whenever possible, I try to find an out-of-court solution. That requires not only a lot of knowledge, but also good social skills to get different parties to reach a solution. If that fails, then we go on to court.”
