DLA Piper launches new sector strategy

Global law giant DLA Piper has launched a seven-sector strategy as the firm bids to sharpen its focus from its current 15 and foster greater cross-selling.

DLA Piper, which is pushing a high-profit agenda that last year resulted in a 13% jump in profit per equity partner to $1.33m, will reduce its sector focus from 15 to seven industries. These are: banking and financial services; life sciences; real estate; insurance; technology; energy; and media, sports and entertainment.
