DLA Piper has moved to bolster its London litigation practice with the hire of Denton Wilde Sapte (DWS) partner Philip Chong. Chong is to join DLA Piper today (4 December) after the firm was able to negotiate an early exit from DWS, which has been known to hold departing partners to 12 months' gardening leave.
