We used DWS for an urgent and complex property matter and found the partners that assisted in a successful conclusion to this matter to be extremely helpful, quick to respond, always available and professional in every way.  When confronted with an aggressive corporate landlord and a very challenging situation you need a great legal team to reach the conclusion that we got and this is absolutely down to the hard work and experience of the team at DWS.  Can’t recommend them highly enough.

We recently purchased a property and DWS provided conveyancing services. Communication was effective and Faaiza Piranie (who handled my case) was quick to respond to any queries I had. She was on hand to follow up on all actions with the Seller’s solicitor, to keep the process moving. I would recommend Faaiza and her team for a reasonable and timely service.


Staff at DWS were quick and efficient at answering our questions and queries. We were very grateful for the professional service that was provided for us.

G. Pritchard

Absolutely fantastic! I was a nervous novice first-time seller and Michaela who was my contact was superb with me. She explained everything in detail, was very patient and helpful and made the whole process extremely efficient and pain-free. From start to finish everything was smooth and stress-free and I felt confident in their knowledge and professionalism. I learned so much during the process too! DWS’s value for money cannot be beaten in my opinion, and I shall definitely be looking to use them again when I go on to buy my next place. Thank you so much!

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.

I had a requirement for assistance in leaving my role as MD of a business and completing a settlement agreement with my former employers. I used Douglas Wemyss following a Google search and contacted them. I was introduced to Austin Ogbata straightaway as I stated that my matter was urgent.

The service I received from Austin was both timely and very professional and he also removed all my concerns in what was a very difficult time for me. His advice was excellent and he provided me with peace of mind.

I would strongly recommend Austin to anyone and I would use him again without hesitation if I have any Civil or Commercial disputes to resolve in the future.

M. Alibhai

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.

I would highly recommend DWS legal to anyone.
I dealt with Rebecca Layton who was brilliant. She was extremly professional and thorough.
