  • DLA is an example of a firm who wants to pretend (to their clients Off course) that they can compete with the top Magic Circle firms, they use all the efforts such as low fees, advertising and CSR but they forget a very important item begins with the letter Q.

  • Good point, Saudi Lawyer. They should consider joining the QS network. "Quality Solicitors DLA Piper". Their PEP would go through the roof next year.

  • I don't think the firm is putting itself out there as magic cirlce, more like a norton rose or hogan lovells. But even then that might be a stretch.

  • hogan lovells is certainly of a higher ilk than norton rose though, IMHO
    it's also pretty much a magic circle firm too (or at least just outside it)... I think the magic circle firms have got stuck with the label of magic circle - so irrespective of quality, A&O (for example) will always be known as a magic circle firm...

  • The usual tired and boring comments from the usual negative crowd who think they have an axe to bear or an insecurity to deal with - dull dull dull - not the best result in the world but not bad at all in the current markets for a firm with a revenue of this size. As for saudi lawyer and dayglo dave - really guys get over yourselves. The world has moved on - you need to.

  • PEP up 15% - makes a mockery of the 1.5% (average) pay rise that the hard working support staff received earlier this year !!!

    Hopefully the Partners will be able to enjoy themselves though.

  • @ Saudi Lawyer, speaking of Q, the actual phrase is "of course" (that is, of with a single 'f').

  • A massive differentiator is that Norton Rose and to a lesser extent Hogan Lovells treated its associates and staff better during the recession. NR in particular is at the top of the pile for that. DLA is at the bottom. Let us not forget that DLA's (unimpressive) finances have been propped up by savage bloodletting of those further down its ranks.
