Today, national business law firm DWF has confirmed the transfer of a team of approximately 50 people from specialist insurance law firm Greenwoods. Following its merger with Plexus Law in May 2013, Greenwoods has agreed the TUPE transfer of 11 partners and their teams. The transfer to DWF will take place on Monday 28 October.
The partners, supported by a further 23 legal specialists, will strengthen DWF's catastrophic and large loss personal injury and non-injury expertise. The move will bolster DWF's presence in Bristol, London and Manchester and also create a new presence in Milton Keynes.
Andrew Leaitherland, Managing Partner & CEO of DWF said: "The team has an exceptional reputation for its advisory work on complex cases and this strength in catastrophic and large loss personal injury and non-injury cases enhances our service offering to all insurer clients. This opportunity supports our future growth in London and Bristol, is in line with our business strategy and will further establish DWF's position as one of the UK's leading insurance law firms."
This appointment follows on from DWF's merger with professional indemnity firm Fishburns in February 2013, which saw the firm establish a presence in Bristol and Dublin and become a leading specialist in the area of professional indemnity law.
