Managing change

Romania’s legal framework is now aligned with EU standards in most fields and the government continues to improve the generally investor-friendly climate. Keeping up with the regulatory and legal environment is key for Romanian and international businesses, and we know how to respond to these unique demands.

Client commitment

Our first ten years were dedicated to building one of the leading practices in Romania and a team with a professional reputation. Our next ten years will be dedicated to our commitment to deliver excellence for our clients.

Our achievements

Engaging lawyers

We hold the Open Doors Day – Insights event every year. Students of the Bucharest Law Faculty visit our office, meet our team and hear stories about how our lawyers made it into the field, the challenges they faced and the rewards along the way. Students also learn about the selection process and the timetable for our annual summer internship.

Early career opportunities

If you’re looking to start your career and make a valued contribution, we offer opportunities to join our progressive global firm and be part of our success. We provide our people with excellent training, learning and development programmes, and the opportunity to experience a wide range of work and clients in a friendly, supportive environment.

Promoting gender diversity

In 2018 DLA Piper won six awards at the eighth annual European Women in Business Awards, organised by Euromoney Legal Media Group. This includes Best Firm in Romania, and Best Gender Diversity Initiative by an International Firm for the fifth consecutive year.

Developing talent

We offer summer internships at our Bucharest office for third-year law students. We’re looking for highly-talented people who can demonstrate an affinity with our values. We ensure you will gain hands-on experience, benefit from training and become an integral part of the team.
