A strong team who complement each other’s skill sets and good connections to lawyers abroad’ are the key factors that define DWF's practice. It has particular expertise in high-value international cases and a deep bench with a core team of 16 partner and 65 associates working in the sector, which makes ‘the service excellent as well as the response times, flexibility and advice market leading’.

Global casualty team head John Groome has ‘significant experience in the UK and US’ and acts for direct insurers on coverage and property/product liability claims. Another notable team member is the ‘efficient and strategic’ Antony Woodhouse, who is ‘excellent in insurance arbitration practice and an absolute pleasure to work with on a day-to-day basis’.
