28 Jun, 2011
Chambers USA ranks DLA Piper practices and lawyers as leaders in business law
DLA Piper has announced that 143 of its lawyers have been ranked by their peers and clients as leaders in their respective fields in the newly published annual Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.
“The continued strength in all of our rankings demonstrates not only the depth and breadth at DLA Piper, but also the market’s understanding of our firm and the strength of our global brand,” said Francis B. Burch, Jr., Global Chairman of DLA Piper. “We congratulate our extraordinary group of lawyers on these much-deserved honours.”
The Chambers rankings are based on extensive research conducted by Chambers & Partners Legal Publishers, a highly-respected English publisher of renowned directories assessing and ranking the world’s leading lawyers. Unlike other publishers that allow firms to purchase a mention or ranking, Chambers’ listings are based solely on outside evaluations of merit. Its researchers investigate law firms and lawyers in each US state through an exhaustive process of interviewing clients and competitors in major areas of business law.
In 2011, DLA Piper received the Award of Excellence as the top US Real Estate practice and ranked in the first tier in 11 national and regional areas of practice, including: Franchising – nationally, Retail – nationally, Corporate/M&A in Arizona, Maryland and nationally (Highly Regarded), Real Estate in Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts and Washington, DC, Litigation: General Commercial in Maryland and Technology: Corporate & Commercial in Texas.
