Legal 500 is one of the leading guides to law firms in the UK and offshore and the rankings are published following extensive research with both the law firms themselves and their clients and peers.
DQ Director, Mark Dougherty commented:
“We have this year at DQ invested a great deal of time establishing an internal culture with a clear vision and an emphasis on an agreed set of values and behaviours.
The focus of our culture centres on the quality of our service and the expertise that we can offer and we do so in an efficient and cost effective manner to our ever growing client base.
It is therefore very pleasing to see that these values continue to be recognised by our clients and peers, as demonstrated by the new Legal 500 rankings. We would like to acknowledge and congratulate every single member of the DQ team, as it is testament to their hard work that we feature again so much in this year's publication in our core practice areas. We would also wish to thank all of our clients for their continued support, without which we could not have succeeded in achieving these top tier rankings.”
