Who's Who Legal Business Crime Defence: Individuals

In 2013 Lisa van der Wal joined De Roos & Pen, a criminal law boutique firm specialised in financial economic and criminal tax law and recognised both internationally and within the Netherlands as an authority in this field. Lisa has been a criminal defence lawyer since 1998; before joining De Roos & Pen she worked at Allen & Overy and Spigt Litigators. 

Lisa van der Wal has extensive experience in providing legal aid in large and complex (international) fraud cases. The fraud cases in which she acts as a defence lawyer relate to, among others, money laundering, confiscation of proceeds of crime, fraud, forgery of documents, fiscal fraud, corruption and financial fraud. She represents companies, directors, shareholders and employees, as well as (employees) of financial institutions and trust offices, accountants and tax advisers. 

In addition, Lisa also assists companies and financial institutions who have been victims of fraud, and aids them in the filing of a criminal complaint with the public prosecution office. For these matters she often collaborates with forensic accountants. In addition, she provides assistance to witnesses who are called to testify in criminal cases.

Lisa is a member of the Dutch Association of Defence Counsel, the European Criminal Bar Association, the International Bar Association and the American Bar Association. She is a member of the editorial board of the SDU commentaries on both criminal law and criminal procedural law, she regularly publishes and lectures to, among others, accountants, tax advisers and trust companies.

WWL says: The “terrifically clever” Lisa van der Wal is praised for her “great capacity to grasp a client’s aims and priorities”.
