Lawyer Rankings

North West > Employment > Health and safety

DWF is active in the defence of highly complex fatal cases involving explosions, collapses, and fires. The team also shouldes a busy caseload in advising on potential or pursued gross negligence manslaughter and corporate manslaughter cases. National head Steffan Groch is noted for his work acting on behalf of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea regarding the Grenfell Tower tragedy. Head of the North West health and safety team Vikki Woodfine advises on safeguarding in education settings. Director Gary Smith leads the Liverpool team and is a key contact regarding fatalities and serious accidents, as well as for compliance and risk management. Senior associate Joanne Witheford and associate Amanda Lea are also both highly recommended.
