DWF crowned Yorkshire Law Firm of the Year

Last night, business law firm DWF was awarded Law Firm of the Year (31+ Partners) at the prestigious Yorkshire Lawyer Awards, cementing the firm's position as a major player in the Yorkshire legal market. From 35 people in 2008 DWF's presence in Leeds has grown to over 340 people today.

The award recognises DWF's rapid growth and investment over the past 12 months, which saw the firm acquire law firm Cobbetts in February 2013, catapulting DWF into the top 20 law firms in the UK and further strengthening the firm's depth in expertise in areas such as banking, corporate, insurance, litigation and real estate.

DWF beat stiff competition from global law firm Squire Sanders and litigation specialists Stewarts Law at the awards ceremony which was held on 2 October at New Dock Hall in Leeds.
