DWF has announced its results for the year that ended 30 April 2018. Revenue increased by 18 per cent from £199 million to £236m, while profit per equity partner also increased.

The international UK-headquartered firm has offices in Belfast and Dublin, celebrating its fifth consecutive year in practice in Ireland earlier this year.

Andrew Leaitherland, managing partner and CEO, said: “This has been another very strong year for DWF, with growth across all of our businesses. Our differentiated offering of services, with innovative non-legal services supporting our core strengths in commercial and insurance, is having a real impact with clients.

“We have prioritised making significant investments which will drive the long-term success of our business and enable us to transform the way legal services are delivered.

“Through these investments we have furthered our international reach and launched our Connected Services division. We have also invested in senior leadership, with the appointment of Sir Nigel Knowles as chairman, the recruitment of more than 35 partners to the business and a further eight promoted from within the business to that level.

“Combined, these investments will help us meet the needs of our clients more effectively, as we continue to focus on innovation.”
