Protecting tomorrow for everyone
In today’s world, ESG issues are of critical importance to business. We’re helping our clients transition to, and thrive in, a more sustainable future. We ask tough questions about purpose and transparency, and find the answers together.
We’re also looking for opportunities to integrate sustainability into our governance, decision-making and operations. We ensure our people have the right resources and support they need to perform and deliver at their best for our clients.
“We are witnessing what could be the biggest reallocation of capital in history. Sustainability & ESG has moved out of the CSR function and into the C-suite.”
Jean-Pierre Douglas-Henry, Managing Director, Sustainability and Resilience
“ESG is no longer a theoretical concept – it is a reality for companies of all sizes, public and private. Our integrated and proactive approach towards the myriad of ESG issues provides a holistic platform for our clients across an ever-changing global landscape.”

Diversity and inclusion
Celebrating our diversity
Embracing diversity strengthens us and inclusivity enables everyone to thrive. But there’s more to do. So we’re listening, learning and taking meaningful action to make a positive difference in our business and our communities.
We’re amplifying the voices of our people and empowering them to fulfill their potential. We do this so we can build the best teams, help our clients succeed, and nurture a culture where everyone feels they belong.
Our clients are at the heart of our work. This firm’s unique strength lies in incorporating our culture of inclusivity into our work to ensure success for our clients. This mindset is the force behind our strength and the reason I’m proud to call DLA Piper home.

Pursuing justice and social change
Around the world, many people and communities face barriers to justice. Through our pro bono work, we help children, asylum seekers, refugees and other under-served groups get the legal support, access to justice and fair treatment they need and deserve.
We also give free advice to nonprofits, UN agencies, intergovernmental organizations and social enterprises. This allows them to focus on their missions and key objectives. And we support social and economic development, sound legal institutions and women's advancement in under-resourced regions.
As a former refugee myself, working in our Pro Bono team has helped me retain my confidence and dignity. I use my lived experience to help other refugees and migrant women adjust to new environments and find new opportunities.
