Australia is now officially home to another global law firm after the integration of DLA Phillips Fox and DLA Piper was completed over the weekend (1 May).

DLA Piper can now boast five offices across Australia and 11 throughout Asia Pacific totaling 700 lawyers following the official integration. Globally, the firm has 4200 lawyers across 76 offices in 30 countries.

DLA Piper's Australian managing partner Tony Holland said the integration marked a "significant" turn for the Australian legal market with local clients now able to access another firm with a global footprint.

According to DLA Piper's Asia Pacific managing partner Alastair Da Costa the move will assist clients seeking international services. "We have seen increased demand across the region for cross-border projects, deals, corporate expansions and complex legal transactions."

"There are many opportunities for our lawyers, in the region and globally, to work on international and multijurisdictional legal matters as well as providing valuable insight and experience on local matters and we are well placed to cater for and compete for this global work."
