Formed in 2003 we are a law firm led by Debbie Black, a litigator with over 30 years’ experience.
Like you, we are in business and understand how challenging that can be. We work alongside clients strategically, helping them to manage risk within their business and avoid litigation where possible. Sometimes litigation is unavoidable and we can work with you to initiate or respond to it.
Our clients are both UK wide and international. They include insurers, businesses, P&I Clubs, not for profit organisations and overseas law firms. We also act for individuals and businesses who may find themselves facing a personal injury claim without the benefit of insurance.

DGBS stood firm for us and for that I am grateful. They always seemed to have a handle on the situation and achieved a first class result. Their expertise, I have no doubt, contributed to the eventual excellent outcome

I was impressed by Debbie Black’s clear insight into the case and her attention to detail. Should we be in the unfortunate position of needing assistance again we look forward to working with Debbie and her team again.

We are a construction company undertaking a number of significant projects at any one time with all the challenges this brings.
Debbie Black worked with us on reviewing risk within our business; she looked specifically at areas that are contentious or potentially problematical for us to help future proof us. I found Debbie very professional, thorough and succinct. She assimilated a lot of information in a short period and worked precisely to the brief we agreed.
We are implementing immediately a number of her recommendations and look forward to working with her again.

We recently instructed DGBS to prepare some new terms of membership. Not only was it very important to us that the documentation dealt with the necessary legalities but also that they were easy to understand, in plain English and not in legal jargon.
DGBS understand our membership and that was paramount to our needs. They have a really positive approach to the service they are delivering. The end result being documents which were put together really well and reflected our initial objectives.
The service they provided was excellent and personal to us. They are brilliant at what they do and have an excellent insight into the sector. They really are experts in their field.

I spent 2 days working with Debbie Black, conducting gap analysis on Aggregate Industries’ response to claims, stress testing our systems and looking at how our internal departments could work more closely in managing risk. It was, at times, challenging and thought-provoking. An external eye was very useful in reminding us that systems are only as good as they are used and monitored.
I enjoyed working alongside Debbie, who is very personable, passionate about managing risk and provided valuable advice and recommendations that the Company will benefit from.
