DLA Piper is bidding to improve partner performance at the firm, with a series of initiatives aimed at helping new and lateral partners, as well as those heading towards the end of their careers.

The projects, which are set to be piloted in the UK and will only affect the firm’s non-US International partnership, are being led by DLA International senior partner Juan Picon and chief executive Simon Levine.
