Stärke durch lokale Exzellenz.

In Deutschland vertreten wir börsennotierte Unternehmen jeder Größenordnung, Unternehmen auf der Stufe des Börsengangs und des Investment Service Providers.


Local strength

As trusted legal advisors to approximately a third of the ASX 100 companies or their subsidiaries and all levels of government, we take great pride in our reputation as a firm that is friendly, accessible and easy to do business with.

Graduate opportunities

We offer graduate programmes in all our Australian offices and have one intake each year in February. The programme includes the opportunity to apply for a six-month international secondment in one of DLA Piper’s overseas offices.

Our achievements

Achieving gender equality

We have been awarded the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation by the Australian government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA). The WGEA citation recognises our commitment to actively encouraging and achieving gender equality in the workplace. The firm has been a WGEA citation holder since the list began in 2014.

Promoting wellbeing

We are a signatory to the Guidelines of the Minds Count Foundation. The Foundation is an independent charity in Australia which supports best practice for mental health and wellbeing in the legal industry.

Supporting our communities

We have committed to new and additional partnerships with indigenous communities through our updated Reconciliation Action Plan. This reflects our inclusive culture and our desire to create opportunities for people to achieve their potential, regardless of their background.

Responsible business

We were named Corporate Citizen Firm of the Year at the 2018 Australasian Law Awards. This was based on the quantity, quality, impact and innovativeness of our sustainability, community, diversity and inclusion, and corporate social responsibility initiatives during 2018.

Who we are

Our vision

At DLA Piper we strive to be the leading global business law firm by delivering quality and value to our clients. We believe that great businesses can make a better world. That’s why we work hard to achieve the best results for our clients, wherever they do business, and for our people, wherever they work.

We’ve created a culture where every voice counts and every success is recognised. And in the face of fundamental changes in the legal industry, we’re redefining the structure and approach of the traditional law firm.
