Once again Dawson Cornwell has been recognised in this prestigious list of the most highly regarded law firms in any of 26 categories covering business, public and private-client fields. We are commended in Family Law. Statistica, an international market research firm, asked solicitors and barristers in England and Wales to recommend the best law firms. Those with the most votes from more than 4,500 respondents made it into this exclusive list. To ensure that the survey was fair, respondents were not allowed to choose their own law firm and votes were scrutinised to prevent anyone from voting more than once.
