DLA Piper

DLA Piper 5

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.
