I can confirm that when firm gives internal presentations about the market featuring a scatter plot of firms based on the variables of PRESTIGE and complexity of work, DLA Piper is one of the firms it places in the TTT/Massive/commoditized/non-peer category
Actually almost cracked up at the absurdity of the chart came up during the presentation.
To be fair, I've got no bones against DLA Piper as a firm. It knows its place and its partners are making bank. I'd rather be an equity partner at DLA Piper any day (though maybe not in their Kandahar office) than an associate in S&C. Yeah, the partners are not making crazy money like S&C partners, but I wouldn't be surprised if the life was better. Good life+$500-$700k... not much you can ask for.
But associates? If you're thinking of going to DLA Piper, then beware.
