    This is so predictable. DLA Piper waited until the magic circle had made unveiled big redundancy programmes before announcing what we all knew it was doing anyway.

    Of all the global firms, DLA is in the worst shape to handle a recession.

    How is DLA in the worst shape to handle a recession? They have one of the best spread legal practices in the world. They do not rely on one or two core areas but instead aim to provide clients with a thorough service in all areas.

    They have also expanded into the Middle East where their profit margins are predicted to quadruple, thus mitigating the effect of the recession in Europe and North America.
    Can you provide any logical argument to support your statement?

  • DLA Piper: 140 more jobs to go

    DLA has papered over the cracks for years. Now that those cracks are getting too large to paper over the truth is at long last coming out. I feel sorry for those people that have worked bloody hard for the firm and get rewarded with unemployment.

    "Of all the global firms, DLA is in the worst shape to handle a recession."

    What makes you think you are qualified to make this statement? And what do you mean by "global firms"?

  • Profits in Middle East ??

    It is well known that many of DLA's lawyers are sitting on their hands in the middle east. Dubai lawyers doing less than 1 hour a day chargeable.

  • Deferrals?

    Just for the record - I'm a prospective trainee at the firm and I have not been asked to defer. Neither have any of my friends who are also due to start at DLA.
