In today’s economic environment, the concept of ‘doing business’ has become increasingly complex. More and more businesses have become global, and even local ones are affected by global forces and trends. In 2005, DLA Piper became one of the world’s largest and most prominent legal service providers through a merger of unprecedented scope. The motivation for doing so was not about size or prestige or putting pins in a map. It was to create a global organization capable of quickly and efficiently serving the most important legal needs of clients wherever they do business, whether it is across multiple jurisdictions or in a single market. Today, DLA Piper has lawyers in more than 40 countries throughout the world’s established and emerging business centers in Africa, the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East. The firm’s continued international growth allows it to offer its clients the advantage of one outside law firm with the depth and geographic coverage to meet their legal needs around the world.
In 2015, DLA Piper combined with Davis LLP to form DLA Piper (Canada), with deep roots in the Canadian and international business communities and services across seven offices in more than 50 practices. In Latin America, the firm completed a cooperation agreement in 2016 with Bahamondez, Alvarez & Zegers in Chile, one of Chile’s leading law firms, and operates as BAZ/DLA Piper. In 2015, the firm combined with Gallastegui y Lozano in Mexico City, which brought DLA Piper together with the longstanding and distinguished reputation of GyL and its 30-year history in the Mexican legal market. The firm also began a relationship with Martinez Neira Abogados, one of Colombia’s leading law firms. DLA Piper has an ongoing cooperation agreement with Campos Mello Advogados and foreign consultancy in Brazil.
