DLA Piper ranks second in Acritas' Global Elite Brand Index 2021

DLA Piper has once again been named the second most powerful global legal brand in Acritas’ annual Global Elite Brand Index. The ranking is based on interviews with 1,565 senior legal buyers across the world’s largest multinationals with revenues in excess of USD1 billion. The Index measures the strength of law firms’ brand across the following metrics: top-of-mind awareness, favourability and consideration for multi-jurisdictional deals and litigation.

Over the last 11 years, DLA Piper has consistently featured in the Index’s top ten, and has ranked in the top three since 2015.

Commenting on the result, DLA Piper’s Global Co-CEO, Simon Levine, said: “This ranking is testament to the strength and consistency of our global platform, and to the calibre of our people and clients who are working together to help make business better. Being a trusted business adviser is at the heart of our commitment to clients and as we drive our global strategy forward, we are committed to help them to succeed in our changing world.”

Global Co-Chair, Frank Ryan, added: “We cannot overstate the importance of fostering deep, collaborative relationships with our clients. This ranking reflects the longstanding skill and commitment with which our people serve our clients and the exceptional results they are able to achieve.”
