DWF pulls in Brecher duo to build private client practice

The firm has launched the London division targeting ultra high network clients.

DWF has launched a new private capital team in London with the appointments of Brecher partner Amanda Chapman and director Roger Holman. Both will help the development of DWF's private capital offering in the UK and internationally. Jon Gould, national head of private capital at DWF, said: 'As we launch our private capital presence in the city and look to grow the practice nationally and internationally, Amanda and Roger bring technical knowledge and a strong commercial, client-focused approach that will ensure a strong start to the next phase of our growth. They have strong industry knowledge advising ultra and high-net worth clients, with a particular focus on business owners and international clients. Their extensive UK and international tax knowledge and insight will ensure cooperative working with our commercial teams to create great results for our clients. We're delighted to have them join the team.'

Platform

Amanda Chapman commented: 'DWF already has a well-respected private capital practice and this gives us an excellent platform to support our existing clients, and upon which we can continue building. With DWF's growing global presence, there is a real opportunity to not only establish a competitive practice in London, but also to grow both the business's domestic and international private client work, particularly from within its existing client base.'
