DLA Piper has been recognized as the sixth strongest US law firm brand in the Acritas US Law Firm Brand Index 2018.
The firm also ranked first in the California market and fifth in the corporate sector. Among organizations with annual revenue between $50 million and $1 billion, DLA Piper ranked as the fourth strongest law firm brand, and the firm ranked fifth among organizations with between $1 billion and $6 billion in annual revenue.
The rankings are based on feedback gathered during more than 600 interviews with in-house counsel in the US who have senior responsibility for buying legal services in organizations with revenues of at least $1 billion, as well as with 176 senior counsel not based in the US who were asked which firms they used for US-based legal needs.
DLA Piper has appeared in the index each year since the inaugural report in 2012, and has moved up five places in the ranking since then. The new ranking is the second time in recent months that DLA Piper received high marks from Acritas. In October 2017, the firm ranked as the second most favorable and recognized legal brand in Acritas' Global Elite Law Firm Brand Index 2017.
