Why would SMEs Mediate?

Raising the Profile: A Call to Action Raising the profile of solicitors continues to be a DASLS theme. Our Legal Awards partnership with DC Media / Trinity Mirror is helping us achieve this and has greatly helped us develop our media contacts.   We have had preliminary discussions with some of the local papers in the region about a regular legal page.

We have already s...
