Jane Toole - DAC Beachcroft
)
Jane Toole

Jane specialises in commercial contracts and technology.

She returned to private practice in May 2019 after working in-house for nearly 20 years at Yorkshire Building Society, where she was Commercial Counsel. As such, she advised on the full range of commercial contracts across the business (including all major technology and change projects, introducer, distribution and outsourcing agreements and commercial contracts for a wide variety of products and services), plus disputes with suppliers.

She also advised on policy and risk in relation to suppliers, procurement, contracting and data protection and provided legal training to senior stakeholders. She negotiated with a wide range of counterparties, from global PLCs, government bodies and major professional services firms to small businesses, personal service companies and sole traders. She has a deep knowledge of the FS industry, including its regulatory regime.

Prior to joining DACB Jane qualified into the Commercial and IT team at Pinsent Masons. Since joining DACB, her main role has been to lead, co-ordinate and manage the provision of advice to Zurich Insurance’s UK branch on their technology contracts. She also advises other insurance companies and financial sector clients.

Her broad experience as an in-house lawyer and her deep knowledge of financial services, coupled with her expertise in commercial contracts and technology law, give her a unique perspective from which to advice FS clients on their commercial and technology contracts.

Jane is a Non-Executive Director and Vice President (equivalent to Deputy Chairman) of Leeds Credit Union, a community-focussed regulated provider of savings and unsecured loans to its members.

Before training as a lawyer, Jane worked for the Bank of England in London for 7 years as a policy adviser in the International Division and for KPMG in Leeds as a marketing consultant.
