Netherlands: Dentons continues global expansion

 |  March 2, 2017

Dentons has secured its first base in the Netherlands, via a merger with Dutch firm Boekel.

Boekel, which is based in Amsterdam, has around 70 lawyers, including 16 partners. The firm, which focuses on real estate, corporate and litigation, will merge into Dentons’ European limited liability partnership.

The tie-up, which has been approved by both firms’ partners and is expected to go live in April this year, will take Dentons’ European office total to 26.

Boekel also has a small London office, which will close as a result of the merger. The office was launched in 2010 by corporate partner Ferdinand Mason, who left to open an Amsterdam base for Jones Day in 2013. It was subsequently used as a base for Boekel lawyers carrying out work in the UK, but the firm will now use Dentons’ London office instead. The closure will result in no staff losses.
