DLA Piper has launched its second layoff consultation in just three months, with up to 140 jobs under threat.

The review, which could see as many as 30 fee earners and more than 100 members of support staff made redundant, will affect staff at all of the firm’s eight UK offices. The consultation will not include partners.

The firm carried out a similar consultation in December last year, which resulted in 15 fee earners and 16 support staff being laid off.


The firm also laid off five fee earners in its technology, media & commercial group in August 2008.

News of the consultation comes just days after Lovells launched a review that could see 94 London staff made redundant.

DLA Piper was formed as a result of the 2005 merger of San Diego’s Gray Cary Ware & Freidenrich, Britain’s DLA LLP, and Piper Rudnick. In 2007, the firm had more than $2.1 billion in revenue, making it one of the highest grossing law firms in the world.
