        Ben Fairhurst: "The DWF Resource team bend over backwards to make freelancing easy for the freelancer. With buy in at partner level, working for DWF Resource has been seamless and I feel extremely well supported from a technological and personal perspective."

        Sarah Padmore: "I felt very well supported by the resource team. There was always someone on the other end of the telephone to assist and make me feel part of DWF. The induction course was tailored to suit a consultant's needs so I could get on with the job quickly."

        Sophie Broch: "I joined DWF on qualification, in 2010, as a solicitor in the CAT PI team in London (defence insurance litigator). I now continue that work as a consultant, from Tel Aviv, Israel, where I am based. I am also working with the Israel practice group, spending part of my time working on business development initiatives to build the DWF brand here in Israel."

        Steve Langton: “I have been a consultant with the regulatory team for nearly a year which has flown by. I have been a criminal defence solicitor for a long time and was looking for an opportunity to add another string to my bow. Working for DWF Resource allows me to keep my criminal work whilst at the same time working gaining great experience in to a new area of law for me. I greatly enjoy my work but we also have a busy family life and a teenage daughter and working on a consulting basis has helped considerably with my work like balance. I can only commend the DWF Resource team and the regulatory team for the very positive experience I have had so far.”

        Tom Westcott:"I worked as a consultant solicitor through DWF Resource for one of their clients for over 18 months. The support was fantastic and helped me to provide a first class service to their client."

        Su Makin: "I have been providing HR consultancy services to DWF's clients for the past four years integrating and understanding the businesses I support from the inside. I always ensure that a well thought out step by step approach to all HR and employment related matters is taken, eliminating the risk of inadvertent breaches of statutory requirements. This successful approach to providing HR consultancy services is undoubtedly due to the strong interactive working relationships between DWF and its Consultants".
