DWF to merge with niche insurance practice Watmores

Top legal business DWF has announced that it has signed terms to merge with market leading niche insurance practice Watmores.

The merger, which is expected to complete in May 2015, will support the firm’s planned national and international growth strategies by strengthening DWF’s insurance, rail and local authority sector capabilities, deepening relations with the firms’ shared insurance clients and growing DWF’s client base of rail operators and local authorities. The move also supports DWF’s strategic growth plans in London and nationally. It is expected that through its merger with Watmores, DWF will become one of the UK’s largest law firms for local authority work.
