About

This content is provided by DWF.

Chairman: Jonathan Bloomer

DWF Group CEO: Sir Nigel Knowles


Firm Overview:

DWF is a listed legal business with an award-winning reputation for client service excellence, effective operational management and innovation. The company became the first main market premium listed legal business on the London Stock Exchange in March 2019. DWF has been named by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s most innovative legal businesses and has been independently recognised for its quality of legal advice, service delivery and responsiveness.

DWF's strategy is to offer clients an integrated legal management approach through three streamlined and efficient global divisions of Legal Advisory, Mindcrest and Connected Services.

Legal Advisory is DWF's traditional law firm arm. The division provides commercial intelligence and deep sectoral experience to deliver premium legal advice to clients.

Mindcrest is an established and well-known brand that provides outsourced and process-led legal services through which DWF standardises, systematises, scales, and optimises legal work.

Connected Services is DWF's collection of products and business services that enhance the Group's legal offerings. The division complements the Legal Advisory and Mindcrest teams through the provision of non-legal services such as claims management, costs and regulatory consulting.

Together, the three divisions support DWF's single Integrated Legal Management approach through which DWF seamlessly combines any number of these services to deliver bespoke solutions to its clients with efficiency, price certainty and transparency. This approach enables DWF to offer solutions that combine traditional law firm services with new, modern legal and business services relevant to today's companies, and the challenges and opportunities they face.

DWF employs over 4,000 people across 30 key locations and has steadily grown its international presence in response to client demand.

In 2019 and 2020, DWF expanded its international footprint by opening a new office in Warsaw, Poland and acquired Mindcrest Inc. to establish offices in Chicago and New York, USA, and Pune, India. DWF also acquired RCD in Spain and now has offices in Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia, Spain as part of its strategic growth plans.

DWF was the first UK legal business to achieve the ‘Disability Confident’ accreditation, which highlights the firm as an inclusive recruiter of disabled talent, and is a Top 30 Employer for Working Families. The business also has its own charitable enterprise, the DWF Foundation, a registered charity aimed at providing funds and support to local charities and programmes focused on education, employability, health and wellbeing and homelessness.
