HFW merges with US firm Legge Farrow


Holman Fenwick Willan (HFW) will be merging with leading US energy and marine firm Legge, Farrow, Kimmitt, McGrath & Brown LLP.

The merger will take place in January 2017. HFW will retain its own identity in the new law firm.

The merger follows successful collaboration between the firms on several cross-jurisdictional client projects in the energy and marine markets.

It will be the first time HfW will have a physical presence in the US.

“We are extremely pleased to be formalising our long-standing relationship with HFW. We are very similar in terms of culture and providing pragmatic, cost effective services.” said Glenn Legge, founding partner, Legge Farrow. “Further, we both value the importance of in-depth sector knowledge. Through the merger, we are able to offer HFW an opportunity to enhance its existing presence in the US; and for us the merger provides our multinational clients with access to an established and well recognised international network.”
