DLA Piper Will Drop Clients

The 4200 attorney firm has 15 franchise attorneys who may be shown the door as focus shifts to serving global corporate clients.

The franchise group is a legacy of DLA's absorbing Piper Marbury Rudnick & Wolfe in 2004.

Now the new co-chairman tasked with reorganizing the giant law firm says that the firm will be focusing on huge conglomerates such as Kraft Foods and Pfizer which can use DLA services across multiple continents and practice areas.

In an interview with AmLaw Daily, new head honcho Tony Angel says:

Some of our clients are too small to fit that model, so continuing to [represent] them doesn't make sense for them or us—even if the work is profitable

Few franchisors can provide the volume and scope of legal work demanded by a Kraft or Pfizer, which suggests a shake-up in DLA's franchise practice group.
