Newcomer of the Year
Shortlisted: Rebecca Southern; Souleymane Simpara and Stuart McCann
Winner: Souleymane Simpara
To make a big impression in the first year of joining any business is a huge achievement. However, to make such an impact during a year like 2020 is something else completely!
To win this award the winner has to be in their first year at DWF and making a great contribution to the business and have truly lived our values and shown excellence through their talent, skills and behaviours. In doing so, they have helped to make DWF a great place to work.
Souleymane joined DWF's Paris office in January 2020 and has shown tremendous commitment and dedication to the firm, all the more remarkable given France entered lockdown very shortly after his arrival.
But it is the pandemic which has also been central to the work Souleymane has delivered to clients this year, reliably and diligently acting for clients on a large number of COVID-related business interruption claims, helping to create trust and reassurance with clients during this difficult time.
Well done Souleymane!
