DLA Piper has laid off eight associates in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, about 8% of the office’s legal staff.
The lawyers were cut from the office’s corporate, finance and projects practices.
In early March, the firm laid off 20 lawyers and 34 staff across its Asian offices. In February, DLA Piper cut 80 associates and 100 staffers from its US offices, plus 30 attorneys and 110 staff in its UK offices.
DLA Piper is one of the largest law firms in the world, and is (or at least was) the only firm with more than 3,700 lawyers in North America and Europe.
