David Williams


After completing his first degree David worked in the commercial sector, in marketing, for a number of years during which he found his calling drafting contracts, non-disclosure agreements, business terms & conditions and dealing with debt-recovery/litigation for the organisations he worked for, as well as succeeding in that industry because of his ability to communicate accurately and persuasively. David decided to retrain to pursue his strengths and he subsequently obtained two postgraduate qualifications in law and legal practice.

David joined DC Kaye & Co in 2009 to specialise into its long-established departments in private and commercial litigation, employment law and criminal defence service.

David quickly proved himself at DC Kaye & Co because of his success with his cases and he was promoted to Head of Litigation in 2011. In early 2013 David was invited into the partnership and became the joint equal owner and Partner/Director of the firm with its longstanding owner and Partner/Director Mr Paul Prikryl, who himself directly took over ownership of the firm from its founder and now Consultant Mr Donald Kaye.

David and Paul share a strong mutual vision about the high-level of service that clients have a right to expect of their lawyers and which their firm is determined to deliver believing in the fundamental value of helping their clients get the best advice at the right time because it is almost always more difficult and expensive to sort out disputes in the future if ambiguities or mistakes occur because legal advice was not taken early enough at the right time.

David is strong in his technical understanding of the law, lateral thinking and yet practical with his advice. His approach to his cases is methodical and incredibly conscientious. He is tenacious, persuasive in Court and in correspondence and shrewd in his legal drafting. He has an enviable success rate with his cases in both the County Court and High Court. You are in safe hands if you instruct David.

Every litigation case is essentially a project that requires the best project management to ensure expedient and efficient success having regard to legal and factual risk analysis, cost vs. benefit analysis and budgeting at all levels.

David has excellent project management skills arising out of his commercial background as well as his thorough knowledge of the civil legal system, its permutations and the contingencies that may arise. In fact David’s client’s rate his skills and foresight for anticipating the contingencies that some lawyers may miss which means that David’s clients are rarely surprised – even by the ‘unexpected’.

David's Services

David is well respected for his conscientious client care, professional manner and determination to fight for the very best outcome for his clients and he is regularly recommended throughout Buckinghamshire and beyond as a result.

As an employer himself as well as being an employment and commercial law practitioner David is well placed to provide practical legal advice about your business. David often provides consultation support to all departments within our firm and he has excellent foresight as a litigator as to what exposures clients may face in their varied matters and how to help reduce that risk.

David is at home when advising on extremely complex cases and high value litigation claims having brought claims in excess of £1.5million pounds and defending claims in excess of £1.25million pounds as well as litigating ‘small claim’ cases which he always treats with equal care and importance as a matter of principle. David is never fazed, always resourceful and whilst recognised for being empathetic and kind to his clients he can be ‘a Rottweiler’ to his opponents and you will be very pleased to have David on your side.

David regularly represents clients in the County Court and High Court as well as representing clients at alternative dispute resolution sessions such as formal mediation.

David routinely accepts cases for medical negligence and professional negligence claims and is developing an increasing client following for claims involving land, such as claims for specific performance of a contract for the sale of land and claims relating to easements/ rights of way and boundary disputes.

Among other areas in law, David has developed a particular level of expertise in contentious probate disputes that he conducts with the added benefit of assistance from the firm’s specialist and expert private client Tax, Wills, Trusts and probate department.

David’s experience advising employers and employees in complex areas of employment law has given him excellent foresight when drafting and advising on contracts of employment and other contracts for both employers and employees alike. David is excellent at anticipating problems before they arise and he uses his legal drafting skills to provide protection for his clients in what are often very specific, specialised and unique circumstances.

David is an adept negotiator and as a business owner himself he is commercially aware and sensitive to the needs of both employers and employees. David advises on a wide range of business needs including sales/ purchases, shareholders’/partnership agreements, employment issues, contracts and anything else you might need advice upon to help you with your business or employment, including drafting contracts or advice about restraints of trade.

David also acts for clients involved in criminal proceedings, providing a defence service as well as acting for clients who wish to bring private prosecutions.

David regularly provides defence advice to clients charged with offences ranging from the more ‘minor’ motoring offences through to offences including serious sexual offences, acquisitive crime, fraud and assault in which clients face potentially lengthy custodial sentences. David provides support and advice for clients at the police station when interviewed under caution and when cooperating voluntarily with the police as well as throughout any subsequent Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court proceedings.

Some of David’s criminal cases have been high profile, although for his obvious respect for client privacy these are not cited by name notwithstanding the excellent results David achieved for those clients and the wider publicity they have received.

Who Instructs David

David is willing to act for anyone who wishes to instruct him. He is instructed, trusted and endorsed by a wide range of clients including private individuals, professionals including other firms of solicitors, surveyors, accountants, actors, commercial companies/partnerships, public/private sector organisations such as Town Councils, Parish Councils and Private Schools in a variety of civil matters acting for both Claimants and Defendants.

David is regularly re-instructed by his existing and previous clients who return time and time again to him and also often ask him to keep their file open even after a particular matter has concluded because they anticipate wanting his advice on various future matters throughout the years. David also accepts retainers on an annual fixed-fee basis by clients such as companies and other organisations who want to retain his services for a fixed-fee because they know they will want to call upon his valuable advice repeatedly at short notice and enjoy the rapport they have with him and the reliability and quality of both his and his department’s advice and service.

Due to growing demand and word-of-mouth recommendations David has increased the number of staff working with him directly in his litigation department to meet that demand. David and his business partner Paul have together recruited a very bright and most dedicated team of lawyers and litigation assistants/executives who work with David to ensure an efficient and smooth service, providing continuity for clients, and brilliant legal minds making sure you get the very best advice and every aspect of your case is used to its strongest effect to ensure the best result for you.
