Jeff Van Bakel
Jeff obtained his law degree from Queens’ University in Kingston, Ontario in 2007 and was called to the bar in June of 2008. He practiced on Bay Street in Toronto for a decade before relocating back to London in October 2017 where he joined a litigation boutique in town. Jeff joined Scott Petrie LLP as a partner in October 2020 where he continues to hone his skills in Commercial Litigation, Professional Negligence Defence, and Construction Litigation.
Jeff grew up on a farm in Dublin, Ontario (North of London) where he continues to spend time with his family when he can pull himself out of the office. Jeff and his wife have four children and currently live in the Masonville area where they spend most of their free time driving their children around to their various activities.
Jeff has a passion for litigation and prides himself on focusing on a results-oriented strategy for every file. When a resolution cannot be readily achieved, Jeff loves nothing more than putting on his robes and arguing for his clients’ rights at all levels of court. After all, for a litigator, going to court is the fun part of the job.
