HFW broadens client offering with launch of consulting business
Global, sector-focused law firm HFW has broadened its offering to clients with the launch of a standalone consulting business called HFW Consulting.
HFW Consulting will advise clients on issues relating to people, technology and risk & reputation, including organisational development, training programme design and delivery, talent management, assessment process design, cyber security, legal strategies, executive coaching, team building, risk, benchmarking, public relations and reputation management.
The business is led by HFW's director of learning and development, Chris O'Callaghan, and will initially target clients in the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
Chris O'Callaghan, Director, HFW Consulting:
"HFW Consulting was launched in response to increasing demand from clients to help them develop their businesses, enhance their people and protect them against risk. We have been providing ad hoc consulting services to several clients for more than a year, so thought it was time to formalise our offering."
"We will always help clients wherever and in whatever way they require, but we recognise that the consulting market in Europe and North America is already very mature and competitive. We see greater opportunity in the Middle East, Asia and Australia, where we think adding consulting services to our strong legal practices in those markets gives us a unique proposition."
Richard Crump, Global Senior Partner, HFW:
"As a true sector-focused law firm, we pride ourselves on our deep industry expertise across aerospace, commodities, construction, energy, insurance and shipping. Clients know that we understand their business and their sector, and trust us to provide commercial as well as legal advice. Broadening those relationships to include consulting services is a natural next step, and means that we are even better able to provide clients with the best and most commercially effective advice possible."
HFW is a leading global law firm in the aerospace, commodities, construction, energy, insurance and shipping sectors. The firm has almost 600 fee-earners, including 180 partners, based in 20 offices across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. We take a progressive approach to our roles in commercial business – thinking creatively and pragmatically to support our clients. HFW prides itself on its deep industry expertise and its entrepreneurial, creative and collaborative culture.
