HFW Partner Diana France is named in The Lawyer's Hot 100

We are delighted to announce that HFW Partner Diana France has been named in the energy, real estate and infrastructure section of The Lawyer's 2015 Hot 100 list, which was formally launched at a drinks reception on 28 January 2015.

The annual Hot 100 is compiled following in-depth research and acknowledges those lawyers who are considered leaders in their field, being innovative and inspirational.

Diana is recognised particularly for her work with major state oil companies and for the extensive training she carries out for lawyers and other professionals in the oil and gas sector. The Lawyer also recognises the non fee-earning roles Diana has within the firm, including being involved with trainee recruitment and a member of the charity committee.

"The current challenges facing the oil and gas industry make it, more than ever, a fascinating sector for lawyers who advise and support companies working in it. I am delighted to be included in the Hot 100 amongst so many talented and inspirational lawyers from across the profession", commented Diana.
