Overview.

DLA Piper is a global law firm with lawyers located in more than 40 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, positioning us to help clients with their legal needs around the world.

We strive to be the leading global business law firm by delivering quality and value to our clients.

We achieve this through practical and innovative legal solutions that help our clients succeed. We deliver consistent services across our platform of practices and sectors in all matters we undertake.

Our clients range from multinational, Global 1000, and Fortune 500 enterprises to emerging companies developing industry-leading technologies. They include more than half of the Fortune 250 and nearly half of the FTSE 350 or their subsidiaries. We also advise governments and public sector bodies.

Responsible Business

At DLA Piper we are committed to contributing to the wellbeing of communities around the world.

We encourage our lawyers to do pro bono work that is meaningful, impactful and supports those in need. New Perimeter, our nonprofit, provides pro bono legal assistance in under-served regions around the world to support access to justice, social and economic development and sound legal institutions.

Our Break Into Law project is a worldwide initiative focused on removing barriers to employment within the legal profession, while we have pledged $6.5m over the course of our three-year partnership with Unicef to improve child justice.

We are proud to be signatories of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), as our support for the initiative underlines our commitment to responsible business.

DLA Piper strives to be a leader in environmental sustainability and undertakes initiatives to reduce the environmental footprint of its business activities in line with our Global Environmental Policy.

Diversity and Inclusion

At DLA Piper, diversity, inclusion and equality are a part of how we live our values. We are one of the world’s largest law firms, with lawyers and staff in more than 40 countries throughout the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Our people reflect the diversity of our clients and the many communities and markets where we work.

With offices worldwide, our efforts to understand, value and incorporate differences are woven into our culture. We are on a journey and, like most law firms, we still have some distance to travel. But with strategic approaches within our geographic regions, we’re making great progress.

History

In 2005 DLA Piper became one of the largest business law firms in the world through a merger of unprecedented scope. The strategy was simple – to create a truly global firm capable of handling the most important legal needs of clients wherever they do business.

Building strong client relationships is the compass for our business strategy and future development. We are grateful for the support of our clients, our people and our communities, all of which have made it possible for us to celebrate the milestones and achievements that make up our evolving history. To share a bit of our story with you, we invite you to view our historical timeline.

In the United Kingdom

DLA Piper in the UK provides full service legal advice from London and the major UK centres.

Unlike many law firms, we are organised to provide clients with a range of essential business advice, not just on large scale mergers and acquisitions and banking deals but also on people and employment, commercial dealings, litigation, insurance, real estate, IT, intellectual property and plans for restructuring.

Because we are there for the important everyday issues, not just the big, less frequent deals, our relationships with our clients are extremely important. We have a comprehensive, award winning client relationship management programme. This enables us to listen to and understand what our clients’ real needs are, and how we can deliver a client-led service wherever they choose to do business. Our brand is built upon local legal excellence, global capability and long-term full service relationships with our clients.
