Industry acclaim for client satisfaction

Following a successful 2011, DWF has ranked first place for the quality of its legal and commercial advice and ranked second amongst national firms in the highly acclaimed Client Satisfaction Report (2011) by Legal Week.

The report incorporates feedback from over 1,000 clients based across 15 sectors. Clients judged law firms nationwide on the quality of their legal and commercial advice, billing practices, service delivery, personal relationships and use of IT Management. Overall we moved up one place, as a result of significant increase in the rating we achieved for the quality of our advice.

The report described DWF as ‘comfortably ahead’ of the all-firm average on the quality of advice, achieving a score of 9.4 out of a possible 10, well ahead of our competitors in the UK market place.

National law firm of the Year

The award is highly recognised across the legal industry and highlights the UK-based national or regional firm that has made the greatest progress over the past year in advancing its strategy. 

“The award is recognition of our values in action. It reflects our continuing period of rapid growth, key client acquisitions and a string of impressive lateral hires.

I truly believe that we have exceptional people who work tremendously hard to deliver the highest quality service to our clients. This award is testimony to that.”

Andrew Leaitherland, Managing Partner

Evidence of strong management, improved financial performance and increased market share across the firm’s major practice areas were key aspects in DWF’s success.
