DWF is a leading global provider of integrated legal and business services.

There is a growing desire for legal and business services to be delivered in an easier and more efficient way. So, we've built our business and designed our range of services on this principle.

We have three offerings – Legal Advisory, Mindcrest and Connected Services.  Our ability to seamlessly combine any number of these services to deliver bespoke solutions for our clients is our key differentiator.

C&H Jefferson, one of Belfast's oldest and largest legal practices, merged with DWF in November 2016 creating DWF Belfast, led by Executive Partner, Ken Rutherford. While we are now part of a listed global legal business, we have over 100 years' experience in Northern Ireland and as one of the leading firms in Northern Ireland, we combine global reach with local knowledge.  The team delivers commercial and insurance legal services to a diverse range of businesses, both local and international, operating in Northern Ireland.

DWF Belfast works closely with our Dublin office and was one of the first GB legal businesses in the market to have a full-service all-Ireland offering.
