Dentons Boekel adds new partner to Banking and Finance team in Amsterdam

Dentons Boekel has strengthened its Banking and Finance practice in Amsterdam with the recruitment of Jacqueline Bell as a partner. She joined the Firm on 1 June, 2019.

Bell is a finance lawyer who advises banks, financiers, leasing companies and borrowers on English law governed transactions. She is particularly well known for her capabilities in transport financing – including aviation, shipping and offshore financing – as well as commodities trading. Over the past four years, she has led a successful freelance advisory business, providing consulting services to clients such as ABN AMRO Bank, Dutch development bank FMO, and IPF Partners, a specialised platform for investment funds. Prior to that, she worked at Allen & Overy and Norton Rose Fulbright.

Bell brings significant international experience to the Dutch market. An English-qualified lawyer, she has worked in private practice in London, Singapore and Amsterdam. She serves clients in English, Dutch and French. 

Wendela Raas, Netherlands Managing Partner, says: “With her proven English law experience, Jacqueline’s recruitment to our Banking and Finance team strengthens Dentons’ position as a leading global firm in the Netherlands.”

“Since joining Dentons, we have made significant investments in the development of our Banking and Finance practice in Amsterdam and can now offer our full scope legal advice covering both transactional and regulatory matters,” says Marien Glerum, Netherlands Managing Officer.

‘‘Dentons is an exciting firm which is advancing at a phenomenal pace. The multitude of technological tools combined with the truly global platform, mean I can offer our clients an astonishing value proposition,” says Jacqueline Bell. “In niche industries such as transport finance and trade commodities finance, it is key that I can present our clients with a one-stop-shop of legal talent around the world. 10,000 lawyers must be onto something; I am thrilled to be part of the movement.’’

Dentons’ Banking and Finance practice includes more than 900 lawyers worldwide.
