  • I had an urgent requirement for assistance in leaving my role as CEO of a business and completing an agreement with my former employers. I had used Douglas Wemyss in the past through another business and so contacted them knowing how professional they had been, and was introduced to Austin Ogbata. The service I received was both timely and thorough and removed all my worries in a very stressful situation. I can wholeheartedly recommend Austin and would use him again immediately if in the same position again.

  • As first time buyers, we couldn’t be more impressed with the service we have received from our Solicitor at DWS, Asma Aboo. It is a daunting process when you haven’t been through it before and Asma has explained everything clearly, providing great support. The response to queries has been immediate and detailed, something we value highly and has helped the overall process run very smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend DWS to anyone considering using them and we will, without doubt, be using them again for any requirements in the future. Many thanks to the whole team at DWS.
