Alexander van der Voort Maarschalk, Fyrone Denny and Diede van der Voort responded on Houthoff's behalf to the consultation proposal to amend statutory lawyer-client privilege in tax matters.

In the summer of 2020, the Dutch government presented a draft bill on amending and clarifying the lawyer-client privilege of lawyers and civil-law notaries to the tax authorities for consultation.

The authors believe that the proposed amendment is unnecessary, and that it will lead to uncertainty about the scope of lawyer-client privilege. The proposal may severely curtail lawyer-client privilege and create a notification requirement for lawyers and civil-law notaries under the Dutch International Assistance in the Levying of Taxes Act (Wet op de internationale bijstandsverlening bij de heffing van belastingen).
