A firm frequently endorsed for its geographic reach, DLA Piper is highlighted by sources as delivering an integrated approach to an array of transactional and contentious proceedings. Across its network, the firm has a strong commitment to sector groups and industry-focused expertise, with retail, pharmaceuticals and technology representing key areas of focus.
Offering clients a vast network of offices and affiliate offices across Europe, Asia-Pacific, Africa, South and North America, the London team provides a global solution for clients in M&A and provides a full service to support transactional teams. The firm has a strong handle on US markets, and is able to utilise multiple US teams to receive and drive transatlantic M&A from the UK, across a wide range of sectors. Similarly, the UK team regularly collaborates with internal colleagues on a variety of public and private M&A transactions touching numerous global jurisdictions, largely operating in the cross-border mid-market space.
One client praises lawyers in the London team for "great knowledge of cross-border transactions, AIM rules and, importantly, doing business in Latin America."
Another source says: "They are excellent at using partner firms and coordinating. They deal well with complications and specialist products, and they coordinate out of London incredibly well."
