Latest from DWF, who are expanding with six new hires;
DWF Chambers is a streamlined advocacy service, which operates as an alternative to the external Bar and traditional chambers. Specialising in four core practice areas of personal injury and fraud, commercial and dispute resolution, employment, and regulatory matters, DWF Chambers operates as an Alternative Business Structure with the ability to accept instructions not only from internal referrals but also from any solicitor, insurer, or client.
This latest recruitment drive sees the arrival of barristers Jonathan Lester and Kim Clifton, and advocates Alistair Bloor and Hannilee Fish to DWF’s office in London. Neil Baki has joined as a Barrister in Birmingham and Christian Mills has joined as an advocate in Leeds.
It means that since October 2021, DWF Chambers has more than doubled its total number of qualified professionals. In addition, it is currently advertising for up to three pupillage barristers to start in autumn 2024.
Head of Insurance Business Services at DWF, Simon Murray, said: “This expansion reflects DWF’s commitment to offering a viable, high quality alternative to the external Bar, with our streamlined approach providing clients with a simplified process, more effective communication and cost benefits. It also reflects the opportunity we see to further increase both the number of existing and prospective DWF clients and direct appointments from our clients.
“Our pupillage opportunities within DWF Chambers demonstrates our long-term ambition as we commit to nurturing future talent, providing aspiring barristers with a unique chance to receive training and mentorship in a supportive environment where they can thrive.”
