As a full-service global business law firm, DLA Piper provides a complete range of business legal services in all of the jurisdictions in which we operate.  Our clients benefit from a valuable combination of global insight and local knowledge that allows us to handle all aspects of complex domestic and cross-border matters.  Understanding the industry and the day-to-day issues faced by our clients is critical to our success.  That is why alongside their legal experience, our lawyers have additional industry-specific focus - whether it is Banking, Energy, Healthcare, Hospitality and leisure, Insurance, Life sciences, Manufacturing, Technology or other sectors.  Our sophisticated practitioners have experience in key practice areas, such as Corporate governance and transactions, Intellectual property, Technology, Antitrust, Compensation, Tax, Financial services, Regulation, Employment, Pensions, Securities compliance, and Real estate.

For U.S. exporters and foreign investors, our Northern California lawyers work with our International Trade practice lawyers to advise both U.S. and non-U.S. clients on the regulation of foreign investment in the U.S.  Our experience with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) is expansive as proper CFIUS risk assessment is critical to nearly all cross-border transactions.  DLA Piper attorneys have successfully represented companies, financial sponsors, and investors in some of the largest and most complex transactions ever reviewed before CFIUS, the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA, formerly the Defense Security Service) and Team Telecom, an executive branch group comprising the US Departments of Justice, Defense and Homeland Security.  Our cross-functional team offers decades of national security experience in CFIUS, export controls, sanctions, government affairs and public policy, government contracts, and telecommunications, among others.  We also advise on global antitrust and competition rules, a necessary and prudent part of any successful business strategy in today’s global economy.  These laws are complex, but they govern a broad range of business conduct: interaction with competitors; obtaining and maintaining a dominant market position; forming supplier and customer arrangements; participation in trade associations; conduct in joint ventures and corporate mergers and acquisitions.  Whether your company is large or small, if it is considering forming a business alliance, moving into a new market, taking a new tack with its competitors, implementing new production, marketing or distribution strategy, or growing through corporate development, advice concerning the requirements of antitrust and competition laws is essential.  The risks and consequences of non-compliance can be severe, but the opportunities are extraordinary.
