DLA Piper is one of the largest market-leading law firms worldwide. We combine and integrate local strength with global reach and support local, regional and federal governments as well as international institutions and national and international companies, going from SMEs to multinationals.
We consider the provision of services to be the provision of legal, strategic and process-related services using only the most talented legal professionals; not only for crucial matters, but also for all other daily legal matters that are equally important. We are passionate about our client relationship management and happily invest thousands of hours managing relationships with our clients.
Our clients range from multinational, Global 1000 and Fortune 500 enterprises to start-up companies developing industry-leading technologies. They include more than half of the Fortune 250 and nearly half of the FTSE 350 or their subsidiaries. Within our firm we group specific sector experience and knowledge across all of our practice groups into specific sector groups in order to optimise the use and further development of sector-specific knowledge. We currently focus on the following sector groups: financial services; consumer goods and retail; energy and natural resources; real estate; infrastructure, construction and transport; industrials, insurance; life sciences; media, sports and entertainment; technology.
Due to our continuous efforts and pragmatic approach we are valued by our clients as "first choice" lawyers. This recognition is confirmed by The Legal 500 (www.legal500.com), which ranks us in 14 out of 15 sections, and other peer-reviews such as Chambers Europe (www.chamberseurope.com).
