DWF appoints new executive partner in Leeds

19 November 2020
DWF, the global legal business, has appointed Allison Page as executive partner in Leeds, effective from 1 January 2021.
Allison will join DWF following 15 years with DLA Piper in Leeds, where she most recently held the role of office managing partner. She will work closely with Andrew Flounders who has led the Leeds team since 2018 and will continue to play a key senior role in the Real Estate Practice Group. 

On her appointment, Allison said: "The Leeds office is already well established but we have a plan to continue to grow across all service areas. It is an exciting time to be joining as I firmly believe that DWF's strong culture and values and its focus on personal development, diversity and inclusion and making a difference in the local community really resonate with people. It is an enormous privilege to lead the Leeds office and be given the opportunity to build on the very good work of Andrew."

Paul Rimmer, DWF's regional managing partner for UK and Ireland, said: "We are delighted Allison is joining us – not only is Allison a first rate projects lawyer with significant management experience but she is completely aligned with our values and vision and brimming with energy and ideas. Allison joins a fantastic office which has been very well led by Andrew. There remain plenty of opportunities for growth in Leeds and I'm sure the office will provide a very warm welcome to Allison and enjoy her inclusive and progressive leadership style."

Andrew Flounders, DWF's executive partner in Leeds said: "Allison will find it’s a great pleasure and privilege to lead such a talented and enthusiastic team. Allison is recognised throughout the Leeds business community not only for her specialist skills and experience but also for being a great communicator and a passionate leader who is also focused on the success of the region. I have no doubt that her joining us is a great step forwards for our office."
