Student (Future Lawyers )
The Legal 500 Future Lawyers VerdictWinner of a Future Lawyers international secondments award, DLA Piper has a renowned global presence with plenty of opportunities for recruits to work in other offices, both regionally and overseas. Trainees can also expect a supportive training programme, which acts as a ‘welcoming environment to grow as a junior lawyer’. At DLA Piper you will be given lots of ‘responsibility and a broad range of tasks’, along with ample client contact and opportunities to prove yourself. Indeed, trainees are ‘consistently exposed to high-quality work here’. The scale of the firm is not to be underestimated though; as a result of the large trainee intake, ‘when you start, you can feel like a very small fish’. What’s more, working for such a large firm may mean that ‘there are often large demands on your time’ and that you may have to work long hours. Yet, demanding work comes with its own rewards; one respondent recalled their best moment, an occasion where ‘my matter partner was on holiday and trusted me to complete the sale of a £40+ million site’. While this may sound daunting, trainees were keen to emphasise that help is always at hand. DLA Piper colleagues are ‘very supportive' and ‘everyone is very approachable and willing to assist you with any questions and queries’. There was some criticism about the firm’s organisation of social events, (a possible result of the pandemic, concluded some recruits). But the ‘strong commitment to pro bono work’ made a lasting impression on trainees. If you are interested in being a part of a firm where colleagues are ‘bright, dynamic and genuinely lovely to work with’, and where you can also receive a ‘free breakfast every morning’, research DLA Piper.
