Leading business law firm, DWF, continues to invest in its national banking & finance team, with the lateral hire of partner John Perez (pictured). John and his legal team will join the firm on Friday 1st February.
John, who previously held the position of partner and head of lender services at Chafes Solicitors LLP, has over 12 years’ experience in the motor finance sector and is highly regarded within the industry. This appointment will strengthen DWF’s national asset finance team and expand the firm’s existing motor finance recovery team, providing the firm with a truly dominant position in the motor finance sector.
John’s experience extends from early pre-termination collections to handling complex high value claims and his expertise includes wholesale funding, regulatory and compliance, recoveries and litigation and consumer credit.
Andrew Gregory, national head of banking & finance at DWF, said: “The appointment of John and his team will bolster the firm’s asset finance offering even further, bringing added strength to the team on a national level.”
John added: “The DWF banking & finance team is renowned for its exceptional work across the UK and has a particular niche in all aspects of motor finance. The move to DWF will see the transfer of all our lender clients and I am keen to explore the opportunities DWF will bring.
“I look forward to working with such an experienced and able team and am excited to be joining a firm that is committed to delivering excellent service across the sectors in which it operates.”
