The Times Recognise DJB on its Best Law Firms List 2020

National real estate law firm Davitt Jones Bould has been recognised in The Times Best Law Firms 2021 list. This is the second consecutive year that DJB has been selected.

The list is entirely peer-selected and based on a simple question: other than your own firm, which practice would you instruct in this area of work?

Lawyers from other firms and in-house positions nominated DJB for its commercial property, planning and landlord and tenant work. Only a handful of firms make this list.

The Times said: "The firm covers the full spectrum of real estate issues, including commercial property, planning, finance, construction and litigation, and has advised on everything from infrastructure improvements at airports to negotiating leases for zoos."

DJB's Senior Partner Madeleine Davitt said: “Awards like this mean our clients are happy with our work and service and that is what matters most to us. I would like to thank all of our clients and our team for all they have done in this most challenging of years.”
