DLA Piper became one of the largest legal service providers in the world in 2005 through a merger of unprecedented scope in the legal sector. While large in scale, the merger strategy was simple – to create an international legal practice capable of taking care of the most important legal needs of clients wherever they do business. We wanted our clients to rely on receiving the right service for their particular matter, whether requiring seamless coordination across multiple jurisdictions or delivery in a single location.

Building strong and substantial client relationships was and remains the compass for DLA Piper's business strategy and future development. Today, DLA Piper has nearly 4,500 lawyers in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the United States. We represent more clients in a broader range of geographies and practice disciplines than virtually any other law firm in the world. Our client commitment is also our brand – everything matters when it comes to the way we serve and interact with our clients. If it matters to them, it matters to us.

DLA Piper was built to serve clients wherever in the world they do business - quickly, efficiently and with genuine knowledge of both local and international considerations. But while markets around the world are internationalizing, this doesn’t mean they are becoming the same. We remain committed, as always, to the local markets that are the building blocks of international business.
About Our Clients
Our Clients
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. As we build our global practices, we remain committed to maintaining regional practices around the world where we already do great work for longstanding clients. This gives us an understanding of middle market clients and insight into the issues facing both large clients and those seeking to establish a foothold.
