Award-Winning Law Firm DLA Piper
Global law firm DLA Piper has been recognized for excellence on multiple occasions, both for its pro bono work and excellence in representing clients in a variety of practice areas. Most recently, the law firm received the Thaddeus Stevens Partnership Award from the Public Interest Law Center of Philadelphia for its pro bono services on a case involving racial discrimination in Philadelphia’s Lower Merion School District. DLA Piper has earned awards from numerous other sources as well, such as Law360, The Daily Record, The American Lawyer and Who’s Who Legal.
With 4,200 lawyers across 30 countries, DLA Piper possesses considerable experience in a wide range of practice areas, garnering awards for client work in corporate tax law, mid-markets restructuring, capital markets and product liability during 2013 alone. Many of the firm’s individual lawyers have been honored as well, including co-managing partner of its New York office Heidi Levine, who was listed by The American Lawyer in its article titled “The Top Young Women of the AmLaw 200.” Ms. Levine is merely one example of the 250 skilled legal professionals working out of DLA Piper’s offices in New York; three practice areas in the New York office were recognized in the 2013 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business. More recently, Baltimore-based partner Anthony Ashton was presented with the 2013 Champions of Justice award by the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) for his work as an advocate for social equality and civil rights.
