DWF adds three new corporate partners in UK expansion

06 May 2021
DWF, the global provider of integrated legal and business services, has appointed three new partners to its corporate teams in London and Leeds.
Wendy Harrison and Jonathan Procter, formerly senior corporate partners at DLA Piper and Alexis Karim from BCLP, are joining the UK corporate practice.

Wendy has vast experience in international M&A transactions with a particular specialism in the hospitality and leisure sector. A lawyer for 30 years, she also has significant experience of private equity transactions acting either for investors or management. 

Jonathan is a corporate deal maker with a strong core practice in mergers, acquisitions, private equity, equity capital markets and corporate governance. His work is particularly focused in the services, food and beverage, financial services and fast moving consumer goods sectors. 

Alexis specialises in private equity and venture capital transactions as well as general M&A work, acting for private equity sponsors, management teams on MBOs, investee companies and large corporates among others. He is particularly active in the healthcare and technology sectors. 

Frank Shephard, Global Head of Corporate at DWF, said: "As a global practice we continue to be extremely active in significant acquisitions, disposals and private equity transactions and deal flow remains strong. We are always looking to bring talent into the team and Wendy, Jonathan and Alexis, each with their own well-established skillsets and experience, will enable us to further build on this momentum." 

Allison Page, Regional Managing Partner (UK and Ireland) at DWF, said: "I am delighted that we have taken the successful first step in our growth plans for the global corporate practice. The appointment of such highly respected corporate partners confirms that the combination of DWF's culture and global strategy are an attractive proposition in the legal market."
