It may be part of the global DLA empire, although the New Zealand network is not a profit-sharing ‘equal’ to its namesake partners, the firm has developed a culture that employees appear to enjoy. Although handling its share of global work via the DLA network, its principal work is domestic and it has engendered a culture that continues to reflect its image as a legal force, even if the local version is less dominant that some of the global counterparts.
DLA Piper says –
Many of the deals we work on are complex and challenging – transcending not just practice areas, but borders, languages and legal systems. We offer exceptional career opportunities to our lawyers, aspiring graduates and business support professionals, in an environment that is challenging, rewarding and different from our competitors. As a firm, we never stand still. We think nimbly and seize opportunities. We’re ambitious and never afraid to innovate.
