        DWF Advocacy

        DWF Advocacy is an expert, quality, streamlined advocacy service, operating as an alternative to the external bar - saving you money and making communication easier.


        Operating much like an in-house set of chambers, with a dedicated clerking team, DWF’s advocates are based right across the UK and work alongside our internal legal teams. 

        Whether you need someone to conduct telephone or in-person court hearings, in all courts across England and Wales, or support with drafting, our commitment to providing the very highest quality legal expertise, at a reasonable cost, sets us apart from the other firms.
