    I have been working at DLA Piper

    Pros

    Good working environment, friendly colleagues and partners. Good deals to learn from and senior management is generally aware of when additional support is required.

    Cons

    The only issue is that when the department is busy, you are in for late nights. Most certainly if a number of deals are on at the same time.
