We strive to be the leading global business law firm by delivering quality, service excellence and value to our clients and offering practical and innovative legal solutions to help them succeed. Our clients range from multinational, Global 1000, and Fortune 500 enterprises to emerging companies developing industry-leading technologies, as well as government and public sector bodies.   

At DLA Piper we are firmly committed to diversity and inclusion. For us, diversity isn't just about visible differences, it's the unique blend of talents, skills, experiences and perspectives that makes each of us an individual and we know it's crucial to have a culture and environment where those differences are genuinely valued.

We offer exceptional career opportunities to our lawyers, aspiring graduates, and business services professionals in a truly challenging and rewarding environment.

As part of our drive to fully capitalise on our ever expanding share of the market sectors, and leading geographical coverage, our Service Delivery and Quality (SDQ) team work strategically across our network of offices, to drive continuous improvement in the way in which we deliver services to clients. We are constantly striving to ensure that these services are of the highest efficiency, profitability and of the highest quality and consistency.   

To underpin this exciting work, we are expanding our established and truly aligned international team of Legal Project Managers and Project Support Officers, with new roles in the UK, Europe and Australia.   

Joining this team, you will have the opportunity to work autonomously whilst being part of a network of strong, professional, supportive colleagues, leveraging best practices to help our lawyers to manage major transactions, within scope, to deadline and to budget.    

You will enjoy working within our global LPM Methodology to ensure consistency, liaising with colleagues around the globe.   

Your remit will include getting right to the heart of new major client interactions, working with our partners to deliver projects. This will include scoping, resourcing and budgeting major matters, managing delivery and problem solving throughout, and reviewing lessons learned for continuous improvement and to refine best practices.

You will have the opportunity to work closely with major clients, many of whom are nationally and internationally renowned.   

We are looking to recruit Legal Project Managers within our London, Leeds, Sydney and Amsterdam offices. Please apply with your CV and a cover letter stating the location you are interested in.
