Abstract

The UK’s ninth‐largest law firm has changed over the last five years from being regarded in legal circles as the “rottweilers from the north”, with a “revolving‐door culture”, to being a great place to work. DLA was 35th in the 2004 Sunday Times Great Place to Work table – its fourth consecutive listing in the top 100 – and tenth in the Financial Times list of the best 50 workplaces in the UK. The company, which has also won an accolade for best learning and development strategy, was a finalist in the 2003 HR Excellence Awards. It holds Investor in People status.
