DWF will close Preston office to focus on Liverpool

Law firm DWF has announced its decision to close its Preston office within six months and to relocate key staff to Liverpool.

DWFThe company, which employs 90 at its premises in Winckley Square and has its headquarters in Manchester, will relocate five partners to Liverpool and launch a specialist motor services team in Liverpool.

The news was announced through The Lawyer, where DWF talked of renewing its Liverpool lease and plans to redesign the space to become more contemporary.

Preston employees who wish to make the switch to Liverpool will find jobs there, a spokesman confirmed.

DWF managing partner Andrew Leaitherland said: “We are creating a strategic centre of excellence for motor work, where best practice is developed and shared across the team and ultimately the entire firm.

“Bringing our Preston and Liverpool motor work into one location will allow us to create a hub that focuses on quality and excellent client service delivery, with a true understanding and focus on our client needs.”

The move follows shortly after KPMG’s decision to close its Preston offices.
