Mr Huub Laauwen
Huub Laauwen is partner at AKD. He specialises in providing tax advice to national and international companies and high-net-worth individuals. Assisting clients in a wide variety of matters, Huub advises primarily in the fields of corporation tax and international tax treaties in the context of structurings, mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and intellectual property structures. He also advises high-net-worth individuals on the tax aspects of the management of their assets, whether held nationally or worldwide.
Huub has over 30 years’ experience working in international tax consultancy. For several years, he also headed the Tax Department of an international company in the service industry with activities in over 50 countries. In this role, he was responsible for all international tax issues.
His combined experience as an international tax adviser and as a corporate tax consultant means Huub is able to assist clients in a wide variety of matters and put forward practical solutions. Huub has considerable experience advising international companies on devising their worldwide tax policies and strategies.
Huub read tax law at the University of Leiden.

AKD‘s tax practice covers the full spectrum of corporate income and withholding tax advisory matters for clients such as multinational corporates, financial institutions and private equity funds. Working with other departments, it is active in M&A, real estate transactions, restructurings and financings. Beyond providing transactional support, the team is sought after for standalone tax advice in its own right; René van der Paardt has expertise in VAT and transfer tax matters. Elsewhere, tax controversies and litigation are another key workstream for the group, which is led by Huub Laauwen.
