Outstanding London law firm DKLM LLP short-listed for Prestigious Legal Awards

The outstanding achievements of DKLM LLP have been recognised by the judges of the most prestigious awards in the legal calendar.

DKLM has been short-listed for the Law Society's Excellence Awards in the category of Excellence in Marketing and Business Development.

The winners will be announced by BBC broadcaster Mishal Husain at a black-tie dinner and presentation ceremony, which will take place on October 18th at Old Billingsgate, London.

The Excellence Awards reward the most outstanding practitioners in the legal profession and are open to the entire legal sector, not just solicitors. Entries were judged earlier this month by specialist judges, including Adam Sampson, chief executive of the Legal Ombudsman; Frances Gibb, legal editor at The Times; and Chris Marston, head of professional practices at Lloyds TSB.

Alan Dixon, Managing Partner of DKLM says: “I am delighted that DKLM has been shortlisted for this prestigious Law Society Excellence Award, and that our formal alliance with top 10 Chinese Law firm Zhonglun W & D Law Firm (“ZLWD”) has been recognised.  The Association will allow us to assist British, and International businesses, who are seeking to expand and develop into the China market”.

Law Society president Lucy Scott-Moncrieff said of this year’s entries: “The quality of this year’s entries is astonishingly high and a testament to the fact that the profession continues to innovate and deliver high-quality legal services even in these economically challenging times.

“The marketplace is changing quickly, with greater external pressure and competition, so it’s great to see that firms are showing no signs of complacency. Far from it, this year’s entries show that the UK legal sector continues to spearhead solutions that allow it to stay at the top of the game.

“I take great pride in announcing a shortlist of such outstanding firms, teams and individuals.”
