Law firm DWF has cuts 26 jobs at its Liverpool office
Law firm DWF has cuts 26 jobs at its Liverpool office.
The insurance law firm’s boss, chief executive Andrew Leaitherland, blamed the reduction in fraud cases since the law reforms.
Chief exeuctive Leaitherland said all insurance law firms have had declining motor fraud instructions since the introduction of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act in April 2013.
He said: “Combined with efficiencies we’ve generated through centralisation and IT investments, this has meant that less admin support is required in our Liverpool fraud, intel and motor teams.”
Roles cut include 15 secretary roles, six solicitors, four paralegals and one analyst.
