  • DLA's focus on growth has come at the expense of all notions of quality control or collegiality. These have been sacrificed at the alter of expansion - geographical and ego. I'm afraid they have a very poor reputation - a bit of a joke really

  • I expect when the future book on successful law firm business models is written, DLA's will only warrant a footnote.
    Assuming that no journalistic licence has been taken with this article, it beggars belief that the regional managing partner of this firm is willing to descibe Australian real estate associates as "cheap" to the press and is unable to recall whether any support staff have been made redundant from his own office!
    The morale at DLA Dubai must have really taken a huge lift this morning when the poor people there read these warm words from their leader.

  • Re the comment about Australian property lawyers being cheap... is that why Tom O'Grady (Head of Real Estate) is as Irish as they come along with the rest of the real estate team?

    I think you must be talking about the Australian Mafia there that runs the Projects Team.

    Also the comment about not knowing if support staff were effected is just insulting. How stupid do you think we are?

  • Dubai has more substance than DLA and that is saying something!

    DLA was always about being the biggest and yet when you see the quality of the work and the lawyers they were not very good. They more like an advertising or marketing company that did bit of legal advice.
