For the second year running national business law firm DWF has been awarded Asset Finance Legal Team of the Year at the prestigious Leasing World Awards 2013, firmly establishing DWF's position as a leading player in the asset finance industry.
DWF has been recognised for the investment in its asset finance team over the past 12 months and its involvement with the Finance and Leasing Association, which has placed the firm at the forefront of the industry. The team has almost doubled in size and is now one of the largest asset finance teams in the UK.
The firm was also recognised for its full service offering to the asset finance and leasing industry, having recently launched its financial services sector group in which asset finance has a dedicated sub-sector, demonstrating the firm's commitment to provide dedicated support to both the industry and its clients.
DWF beat stiff competition from Shoosmiths and Gateleys at the awards ceremony which was held on 2 October at 1 Whitehall Place in London and attended by over 220 people from the asset finance industry.
Joanne Davis, asset finance partner at DWF, was also awarded Leasing Personality of the Year in recognition of her contribution to the industry.
Joanne commented: "This award is fantastic recognition for all of the hard work the team have put in over the past year to service its clients and the industry, we have almost doubled the size of our team and are now able to better service clients across the UK and internationally."
Leasing World is a key publication for the Asset Finance industry and the awards recognise excellence in this sector.
