HFW continues international investment across core sectors with Partner promotions

29 March 2012

Holman Fenwick Willan continues to boost its partnership ranks, with the announcement of three internal promotions across core sectors of focus, including aviation, insurance and logistics.

The announcement highlights the firm’s commitment to expansion in support of its positioning as leader in the market for international commerce. The promotions are effective from 1 April 2012.

The firm’s Dubai office is boosted with the promotion of Sam Wakerley, specialising in shipping, trade and insurance (marine and non-marine), while in London, Edward Spencer, an aviation insurance specialist, and Justin Reynolds, who focuses on logistics and multimodal transport, are welcomed to the partnership.

The announcement comes as part of the firm’s continued investment across its core sectors of focus on an international basis, having over the last year also announced a number of lateral hires to the partnership, including the recruitment of the former BLG aviation team (Edward Spencer joined with this team), and two new office openings: São Paulo and Perth, Australia. Such investment is in direct response to client needs across the globe, and reflects entirely the firm’s long-term objectives.

Richard Crump, HFW’s senior partner said:

“We are delighted to welcome these high calibre individuals, with the range of skills they bring, to the partnership. As we continue our strategy of growth in our core sectors, their promotion complements the recent developments we have made through lateral hires and office openings.”
