More Together. Delivering better client outcomes

It’s never been more important for organizations to consistently deliver their strategic priorities. Clients work with DLA Piper Business Advisory to navigate complex challenges and deliver better outcomes through our integrated teams of consultants and lawyers.

DLA Piper Business Advisory provides solutions to clients' complex challenges through integrated teams of highly experienced advisors and lawyers. Our solutions center around our legal strengths, target specific client challenges and were co-designed with clients. 

Our international advisory teams are dedicated to delivering transformative change through decades of experience. We help our clients manage risk, accelerate opportunities, and achieve better commercial outcomes. We provide clients a single point of accountability to address the frustration of multi-provider models. 

Our clients love our deeply collaborative approach. Co-design is at the center of everything we do. And we seek every opportunity to uplift their internal capability.

We’ve drawn our services from decades-long experience in strategy, transformation, risk management, organisational change and they are focused on M&A, ESG and, in some regions, business valuation and financial modelling and financing advisory.

“Clients achieve better outcomes and have an integrated, dedicated team working with them every step of the way.”

Integrated M&A

The M&A ecosystem is complex. Dealing with its complexities is typically outside business-as-usual and requires the right support to maximize success and value returned to the organization. Successfully creating that value requires a skill set that many organizations don’t possess. 

Our services are designed to address the inherently complex risk by uplifting capability and overcoming any capacity challenges. Our integrated team accompanies you through the deal lifecycle with a single point of accountability from the pre-deal strategy and preparation and deal execution to close and integration/separation. We also advise on M&A ESG, ventures and joint ventures. 

Sustainability and ESG

Sustainability, environment, social and governance is no longer a corporate box-ticking or report-writing exercise. Your organization’s social license depends on meeting stakeholder ESG expectations and driving performance through well-articulated strategy and associated actions. In ESG there are more good plans than good performers.

Our integrated team supports clients with ESG from ambition to strategy to implementation, avoiding the frustration clients often experience with traditional multi-provider models. Our key services include ESG strategy and implementation, materiality assessments, strategic ESG transaction due diligence, sustainable procurement, modern slavery, greenwashing mitigation and driving diversity and inclusion.
