Deighton Pierce Glynn (DPG) is one of the leading civil liberties and human rights law firms in the UK.

Our aim
Our aim is to use the law for good, to do high quality work in a collaborative and client-focused way.

To enable us to do this we need to have a firm that is organized in a way to enable this to happen. The firm needs to employ, train, and retain high calibre staff, it needs to have systems that supports our work, and we need to ensure the work we do is sustainable – financially and in other ways.

Our values

  • Respect
  • Fairness and openness
  • Integrity and honesty
  • Promoting equal opportunity and empowering each other to fulfil their potential

& by having these values, creating a firm that survives and thrives.

Operating from offices in London and Bristol, we have nine core areas of practice, and we employ some of the very best solicitors in the UK. We are adept at conducting high-profile test cases and related campaigning work for individuals and organisations. We are equally committed to conducting less high-profile but no less important work for our clients, including cases which are highly confidential. We have acted in numerous leading cases up to and including the Supreme Court as well as the European Court of Human Rights.

We are renowned for our commitment to our clients and for our skillful and determined use of the law to achieve their objectives. As a result we receive excellent client feedback, so much so that most of our work now comes from word-of-mouth referrals whether from former clients, the NGOs and charities we work with, or from other lawyers.

Our reputation for excellence is recognised year-on-year by the Chambers and Legal 500 independent directories who obtain confidential feedback from our clients, those we work with and with our opponents.
