Good Talented People, Lawyer led firm
DLA Piper is a wonderful dynamic firm with very smart dedicated professionals. I enjoyed working there for a short time. However, the firm is in the end lawyer - led and the compensation and recognition of non lawyers , like economists, reflects that. There are rigidities in the firm to protect the lawyers... and that is the firm's choice.
Overall - more ... good working environment with the legal team. - less
Consrigid employment structure adn limited promotion ability for non lawyers
