We are the only firm in the world that offers a top-tier global defence and security practice, as well as the ability to draw upon experienced defence, procurement and infrastructure lawyers throughout the world. We also draw from DLA Piper’s broad range of resources to provide advice to the defence industry in the areas of international trade, export controls, corporate transactions, tax and employment.

The lawyers and consultants of DLA Piper offer comprehensive advice to the defence industry to assist clients in accomplishing their business, legal, and political goals. We understand the complexities of contracting with various national departments or ministries of defence and the legal structures and constraints of working with government departmental entities.

As a global firm, we have lawyers with substantial defence experience in Europe, the Eastern Bloc, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and the US.

As the team that delivered one of the first-ever PFIs in the UK defence sector in 1998, we are a longstanding major player in the defence market.
