Great businesses make a better world. Wherever they are, and wherever they’re going, we help our clients succeed. And despite the disruption from the coronavirus pandemic, we’re not standing still – we’re giving clients far more than the legal advice they rely on us for. Through our new Law & brand, we’re delivering solutions beyond traditional legal services. From consultancy to cutting-edge AI, Law& integrates technology and first-class commercial and legal knowhow. It’s about doing things differently: challenging assumptions and redefining problems to find ways of making business quicker and easier. And being a responsible business means we also know how important it is to help our people and communities feel they belong and have a voice. Events this year have placed a renewed focus on equality, diversity and inclusion. We’ve refreshed our D&I strategy and introduced initiatives such as the legal sector’s first social mobility impact report, in partnership with the Social Mobility Pledge. Sustainability and ESG issues are increasingly a priority for businesses, including us. A UN global Compact signatory, we were one of the first firms to commit to science based climate change targets. And every year we contribute hundreds of thousands of pro bono hours to help underrepresented and less-privileged people around the world. DLA Piper. Making business better – for everyone.
