Working closely with her clients, Marleen specialises in criminal law.
Marleen works with Stibbe since 2009. She developed specialist expertise in cases with both criminal law and administrative law/regulatory aspects. Given this specialist expertise, she advises several companies in the Rotterdam-Rijnmond District involved in (potential) criminal cases. These included environmental law violations such as violations of permits, EWSR (EVOA), EWL (Eural) and violations of the Major Accidents Risks Decree 1999 (Brzo 1999) and the Working Conditions Act (Arbeidsomstandighedenwet).
Marleen also handles many complex cases on corporate fraud (corruption, forgery, tax fraud, securities fraud, market abuse and money laundering), in which she advises high-profile companies as well as their directors and employees.
She has a Master of Law (LL.M) in criminal law from the University of Groningen, graduating cum laude in 2008. In addition, she attended Law Firm School (2010-2011), the Stibbe MBA Highlights programme at INSEAD (2013) and an extension course in criminal law (2014).
Marleen is a member of the Dutch Association of Young Criminal Defence Counsels (Nederlandse Vereniging van Jonge Strafrechtadvocaten).
