wHAT Clients Say
I highly recommend the services of DG Legal. A joy to work with, every question or query answered promptly and really helpful advice. Catherine Harper was particularly brilliant. Every firm should be with DG Legal.
Managing Partner, Watkins Solicitors
I have had the benefit of some excellent support and advice from David Gilmore and his colleagues at DG Legal over many years, and, most recently, from Catherine Harper whose services I recommend without hesitation. Dealing with Catherine felt like having an extra specialist on our in house compliance team. She completely understood what was required and provided excellent advice and support in a professional and proactive way. Catherine was completely on top of Lexcel 6.1, understood our approach to the challenges of GDPR and the new Money Laundering regulations, and offered informed and practical assistance throughout. The whole experience was a very professional, calm and reassuring one and I look forward to working with the DG Legal team again on our next compliance challenge. I would also commend DGLegal to anyone seeking advice regarding any aspect of the new SRA code of conduct coming into force on the 25th of November.
Partner, Miles & Partners LLP
