More about Sid

Sid is HFW's Chief Operating Officer.

As COO his focus is two-fold; to lead the firm's Business Services, less Finance, to deliver optimum support to client facing staff and clients alike; and to work with the firm's leadership to drive profitable growth and a positive culture across the firm.

Sid joined the firm from KPMG, where he spent eight years working in internal operations and projects, finishing as the COO for the Financial Services practice in the UK. Prior to joining KPMG he had a first career in the British Army, as an infantry officer on deployments around the globe and in various staff appointments within military joint headquarters.

We are working with clients across our international network to help them minimise the impact of COVID-19 on their business and to prepare for what's next. To find out more, visit our dedicated Covid-19 hub.


The London office is the firm's largest, with over 250 lawyers.

It offers the full range of services that HFW provides globally, with partners from the London office working closely with all the other HFW offices, as well as in many jurisdictions around the world. HFW moved to its current premises in September 2008, having previously been in nearby Lloyds Avenue for almost 100 years.
