HFW Ranked By The Times Among UK’s Best Law Firms

14 November 2019

Global, sector-focussed law firm HFW has been ranked by The Times among the UK’s best law firms.

HFW is ranked by The Times as a market leader in four areas: company and commercial; energy and resources; maritime; and M&A.

The Times said that HFW’s sector expertise in aerospace, commodities, construction, energy, insurance and shipping has given it “a depth of knowledge rivalled by few other law firms”, and noted the significant growth of the firm’s M&A and commercial litigation practices.

The Times also highlighted HFW’s continued international expansion, with recent office openings in Abu Dhabi and Monaco, and the launch of the firm’s standalone consulting business, HFW Consulting.

The rankings are based on a survey of more than 3,200 solicitors across England and Wales. Less than 2% of law firms recommended by respondents made it into the final rankings.

Richard Crump, Global Senior Partner, HFW:

“We are extremely pleased to see our deep sector expertise and the strength of our disputes and transactional offerings recognised by The Times. We pride ourselves on providing clients the best possible service across our chosen areas, and have expanded significantly in recent years – both in terms of our practice and international network – to help us to continue to meet our clients’ changing needs. We have ambitious plans for the future and will actively continue to pursue opportunities for further growth across our core sectors, services and geographies.”

Jeremy Shebson, Managing Partner, HFW:

“This ranking reflects the talent, hard work and commitment of everyone at HFW around the world. We’re lucky to have outstanding and ambitious lawyers and business services professionals, who together embody our entrepreneurial, creative and collaborative culture, and who share our determination to drive the business forwards.”
