DWF appoints new Executive Partner in Leeds

04 July 2018
International legal business DWF has announced the appointment of Andrew Flounders as the business's new Executive Partner in Leeds.
Andrew has been with DWF for over five years and in that time has been instrumental to the leadership and development of the business's Real Estate practice, through his role as Head of the Leeds Real Estate Team as well as National Head of the business's Property Development Product Group, and is very active within the business's real estate and local government sector groups. He has advised many of DWF's key national and regional clients, including Palmer Capital, Moda Living and Leeds City Council and has developed a national profile in the development and letting of live entertainment arenas.

DWF appoints Executive Partners for each of its office locations globally, each of whom plays a key strategic role in people engagement, client service delivery and community investment at a local level. Launched in 2007, DWF's Leeds office is one of the business's longest-standing UK offices and now has over 250 people working across its insurance, commercial and central services divisions. Leeds is also a key hub for DWF's Connected Services division, which comprises a range of businesses focused on delivering specialist legal and non-legal as well as consultative services to clients.

Andrew Flounders commented on his appointment: "Our Leeds office acts for some really high profile names in the region and delivers a wide range of expertise to clients, but I'm equally proud to say that we have a very strong, people-focused office culture, with a good work-life balance and a very strong commitment to our community. The growth and evolution of the office in the past decade has been significant, and I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to work more closely with our people going forward to keep building on this momentum."

Andrew succeeds previous Executive Partner Nic Crocker, who retired from DWF as a Partner in early 2018 and is currently acting as a Consultant to the business.
