Local strength

We pride ourselves on being both a global and a local law firm. Our cross-disciplinary team approach delivers solutions quickly, efficiently, and with an integrated perspective of business needs and the legal environment in which our clients operate.

Graduate opportunities

We actively collaborate with universities by organising workshops, educational programmes and career days. These opportunities allow us to offer an insightful perception of the work experience at our firm.

Our achievements

Brand reputation

The Acritas Law Firm Brand Index 2018 confirms our firm as the first international brand operating in Italy. And we’ve now achieved brand awareness and favourability similar to that of the major domestic players.

Diversity and inclusion

We’re particularly committed to this topic at both an international and a local level. LAW Italia (LAW – Legal Alliance for Women) is a group formed by the female professionals at our firm with the purpose of promoting and enhancing opportunities for female talent.

Promoting innovation

Innovation is of central strategic importance for our growth. In Italy we invest in many ideas and proposals aimed at making our professional activity more modern, creative and in step with the changing needs of our clients.

Team building

We actively support team building activities. Since 2012, Chorus, a representative body of the youngest professionals, has been active. Among the initiatives, two DLA Piper Italia scholarships are assigned to professionals who have distinguished themselves through high-level training courses.

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 that encourages and values individual choice and opportunity, combined with inclusion and teamwork. We give, we share and encourage you to do the same.

Our culture is always open and always honest, strengthened by the four values we live every day: Be Supportive; Be Collaborative; Be Bold; Be Exceptional.

At DLA Piper, innovation and challenging the status quo are the vital spark to how we think and what we do. Together, we create exceptional experiences, outcomes and growth for our clients and people.

We make this happen with a culture where you bring your passion and individuality to work every day. We want you to reach your full potential as part of a diverse, global team that thrives on collaboration, and seizing opportunities and commercial edge.
