THE FIRM DMH Stallard delivers success by providing first-class legal services to its clients with energy, technical excellence and creative innovation. The firm offers a compelling alternative to ‘Big Law’ for larger corporates; is a natural partner for ambitious entrepreneurial businesses; and is a conscientious provider to private clients.
DMH Stallard is one of the most respected and forward-thinking mid-market law firms in the country. In 2017, the firm won the Corporate Law Firm of the Year at the prestigious South East Insider Dealmakers Awards for the fourth time since 2012.

DMH Stallard is growing quickly and completed two mergers in 2015. In January, DMH Stallard merged with Guildford-based law firm AWB Partnership and this was followed by the merger with Ross & Craig in December 2015. Both mergers further strengthened DMH Stallard’s presence in London and the South East, enhancing the firm’s existing footprint and offices in the City of London, Gatwick, Guildford and Brighton. The firm’s mergers with AWB Partnership and Ross and Craig also add significant expertise across a range of disciplines, including private client, family, litigation and real estate, and bring the total number of partners to over 55.
DMH Stallard is dedicated to making its clients, and the communities in which it works, the centre of its business.

DMH Stallard delivers exceptional client experience through being available, prompt, commercial, clear in its communication, courteous and easy to work with. The firm’s work is partner-led and the firm’s lawyers understand what it takes to run a successful business and how to deliver the personal needs of individuals. DMH Stallard continues to develop products to support client needs. It offers long-term retainers covering legal services for a fixed price.
