          DWF Advocacy

          DWF Advocacy is an expert, quality, streamlined advocacy service, operating as an alternative to the external bar - saving you money and making communication easier.

           

          Operating much like an in-house set of chambers, with a dedicated clerking team, DWF’s advocates are based right across the UK and work alongside our internal legal teams. 

          Whether you need someone to conduct telephone or in-person court hearings, in all courts across England and Wales, or support with drafting, our commitment to providing the very highest quality legal expertise, at a reasonable cost, sets us apart from the other firms.

          Testimonials

          "I highly recommend Sahar and his team, who were the most approachable, professional and knowledgeable advisors and I really felt totally supported throughout what has been a difficult contract dispute. The advice received was always given promptly and I'm so happy with the quality of not only Sahar's advice, but his advocacy which saw us successfully defend the claim and get a brilliant result in terms of costs too! Sahar was always there no matter what query or question I had and it really was a pleasure to deal with him and resolve the dispute so successfully."
