Nowcomm, the network skills, managed services and support company specialising in unified communications, has been awarded the contract to help national law firm DWF complete the integration process following its recent merger with Fishburns LLP and the recent acquisition of Cobbetts LLP.

This included the full network fit-out and opening of a new office, closure of old office space and the physical relocation of 450 staff and resources in just 14 calendar days. “The success was only possible through the flexibility and agility of our trusted partners, including Nowcomm” said Richard Hodkinson, Chief Technology Officer at DWF. “Nowcomm performed as an extension of our internal team, brainstorming ideas in what was a very fluid environment”.
Named ‘National Law Firm of the Year’ at the Legal Business Awards 2011, DWF is one of the fastest growing law firms in the UK..

Martin Ashberry, Head of IT Operations at DWF commented: “Nowcomm showed yet again that they always have expert technical resource and coverage to look after our ever expanding national business.”
