How to reverse the order of Name, Firstname in the bibliography when using a *-dw style ? The xpatch trick does only work with built-in and some other styles, not biblatex-dw ones.


A method that works for the biblatex-dw styles as well as for the standard styles that come with biblatex is to declare


in the preamble. See the section "Bibliography – order of first names and last names" of this answer for details.





  author = {Author, Adam},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
