Don't give up.

Prof. Göran Sluiter

Göran Sluiter specializes in criminal law, international law and international criminal law. He represents clients in all of these areas of law, in national and international procedures. His approach to cases leverages his years of experience as a deputy judge, and his academic knowledge of the subject gained in his additional role as a professor.

Göran Sluiter is also specialised in representing victims in criminal cases. He often acts in cases with an 'international component', representing victims who live abroad but who have fallen victim to Dutch suspects.
