Business crime and Criminal law defense




Enide specialises in fraud cases, such as money laundering, corruption and tax fraud cases, as well as in economic criminal cases such as health and safety and environmental criminal cases.

A few examples: Enide is currently working on several (international) corruption (bribery) cases and large environmental criminal cases. In 2020/2021 Enide has been successful in avoiding prosecution and thus public exposure for corporate and private clients by reaching out-of-court settlements in tax fraud and environmental criminal cases. After careful handling she also reached several case dismissals by reason of clients being wrongly accused.

She has extensive experience in rendering legal assistance during and after dawn raids, where one of the focus points is the protection of legal privileged data. She is a sharp and thoughtful negotiator when it comes to reaching out-of-court settlements, and has a sharp eye for detail when preparing for trial. 

She is frequently engaged by lawyers abroad to advise them or their clients on criminal law matters when Dutch legal interests are in play, and to render legal assistance in cross-border crime cases.

In the period 2017 – 2019 Enide was one of the teachers at the Financial-Economic Criminal Law Course at the VU Law Academy in Amsterdam. Enide is a member of the International Bar Association (IBA) and former Co-Chair (2017 – 2018) of the criminal law committee of the IBA. She is a frequent speaker at IBA conferences and has also been a “digital speaker” during the Covid period on topics regarding (international) corporate criminal law. She publishes (in English) on professional legal privilege. In 2011 she was one of the initiators of the Dutch legal journal ‘Sanctions Law and Companies’ for which she has been a (Chief) editor until 2020.
