Overview

DWF is renowned for its expertise in insurance work, especially in the field of personal injury, which includes the highly specialised area of international travel, which constitutes a niche practice area for the firm. Our impressive resource in personal injury as a whole comprises in excess of 750 legal staff across our offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newcastle and Preston. This resource is further expanded by our international offices and very close connections in Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Germany, Australia, Dubai, Singapore, Ireland, Northern Ireland and the United States.

We have an extremely strong client base of major insurers, based both in the UK and abroad.
