From Our Website

DKLM is an established central London law firm with a strong international focus. Based in EC1, our expert legal teams offer a complete range of legal services to our private and commercial clients. DKLM was formed in 2004 and has grown substantially so that it is now able to provide a one stop service to meet all of its clients' personal and business needs. In the last decade we have been careful to listen to the needs of our clients, and as they have expanded and grown, we have also expanded our areas of practice and sought out new opportunities for the firm, and our clients, internationally.

Our dedicated team of residential conveyancing solicitors and lawyers is well established, with a first class reputation for offering bespoke, client focused legal advice and services covering a full range of residential property matters to clients based in London, throughout the UK and abroad. DKLM is accredited by the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) accredited, and we are also on the panel of the majority of lenders, which means that we can act for you and your lender. Our residential conveyancing solicitors and lawyers have extensive residential property experience and aim to ensure that our clients achieve their desired results in a timely manner.

Our dedicated Property Litigation team acts for landlords, tenants, freeholders, leaseholders and property agents. Our clients range from large commercial property developers to small private investors and homeowners. Whoever we act for, our aim is to provide a cost-effective solution to any problem which our clients may face. If necessary, we will pursue rigorous Court action but we are also aware that this can be costly and time-consuming and therefore we do consider negotiations and mediation, if this is appropriate.

Our corporate and commercial solicitors have an excellent reputation for providing legal advice and services on a wide range of company and commercial law issues to clients in London, the UK and abroad. We have a wealth of legal experience, representing a broad range of commercial and corporate clients across various sectors, including in particular designers, the health care sector, property developers, the waste industry and web based businesses. Our partner led corporate and commercial solicitors have the legal skills and expertise to be able to give specialist legal advice and services to entrepreneurs and companies alike throughout the life of your business: from initial startup, through the development of your business to its eventual sale.

The noise of playing children screaming and shouting is purgatory to some but, in a High Court case, such concerns were not enough to convince a judge that planning permission for an adventure activity lake in the grounds of a historic manor house should be overturned. The case concerned a landed estate which has a Grade II* listed manor at its heart, surrounded by grounds and formal gardens which are also listed. Those heritage assets, which were once home to a private boarding school, had fallen into a sad state of disrepair when the estate was acquired by a company that provides outdoor adventure activity courses for schoolchildren.

Our specialist employment team acts for a range of employers including SME's, start-ups, entrepreneurs, LLP's, global companies and professional services firms. We are fortunate to work with many high growth companies that we have supported at all stages of their growth and development. We also provide a specialist service representing senior executives and board directors (often at FTSE 250 companies), high net worth individuals and those in high profile positions. We work with employers to help protect their commercial and business interests.

Whether you are an employer or employee, an individual or a businessman, a multinational company or an educational institution, we are here to guide you through the complex UK immigration laws and to provide you with a bespoke immigration solution. We work closely with UK government officials and other professionals to help overseas clients with their initial visa applications and subsequent investments and business development in the UK. Our immigration team can provide tailor-made advisory services to clients in English and Chinese.

Our licensing team acts for a range of clients across England and Wales from small local operators to complex leisure and entertainment facilities. Our expertise expands to all areas of licensing law concerning the sale and supply of alcohol, regulated entertainment, large event licensing, and late night refreshment. We are also able to advise on all aspects of betting, gaming, lotteries (including prize competitions) and leisure activities. The team deals with applications for new premises licences, variations and transfers of licences and applications for personal licences.
