Life moves fast at DLA Piper, and with good reason.

Our vision is to be the leading global business law firm. With a truly international presence, award-winning reputation and a track record of exceptional growth, we're well on our way.

As New Zealand's only global business law firm, we provide a full range of legal services, covering all major regions and key markets, benchmarked against international best practice. We provide a seamless service, advising international clients doing business in New Zealand and local organisations doing business elsewhere.

We help the world's top companies with their business-critical issues. Many of the deals we work on are complex and challenging – transcending not just practice areas, but borders, languages and legal systems. We offer exceptional career opportunities to our lawyers, aspiring graduates and business support professionals, in an environment that is challenging, rewarding and different from our competitors. As a firm, we never stand still. We think nimbly and seize opportunities. We're ambitious and never afraid to innovate.
