Life during law: Juan Picón, DLA Piper

I come from a big family. The only male. I have four sisters and was exposed to the talent and influence of women very early on.

My father’s influence led me into law. He had a very small law firm, just himself and another partner. And he was obsessed with me as his successor to get into law but in a different way from him. He was visionary enough to see that the law was going to change and it was better for me to do something different.
