DLA Piper has won the Firm (Specialism) of the Year Award for its Commercial Contracts group, part of the Intellectual Property & Technology practice, by Legal 500 UK.
The Legal 500 UK Awards celebrate and reward the best in-house and private practice teams and individuals over the past 12 months. Assessments are not submission-based but focus on comprehensive research into the UK legal market.
DLA Piper's Commercial Contracts group is one of the largest in the world. The group advises clients on business critical UK and multi-jurisdictional commercial contracts and distribution transactions across a number of sectors, including, Manufacturing, Retail, Hospitality & Leisure, Consumer Goods, Food and Beverage, and Consumer Finance.
Iain Bowler, Global Co-Chair of the Commercial Contracts & Distribution group at DLA Piper in London said "Whilst winning an award is always pleasing, this one is particularly special as it is based on client feedback. DLA Piper's UK Commercial team has worked extremely hard over a number of years building the practice and developing a seamless global commercial contracts and distribution capability with colleagues across the world. For those people this award has been a long time coming, and is thoroughly deserved."
