DLA Piper tops list of largest U.S. law firms


DLA Piper is the largest law firm in the U.S., according to the National Law Journal’s most recent rankings released Tuesday.

DLA Piper, which has Baltimore-area offices in Mount Washington and downtown Baltimore, has 4,036 lawyers. That was a 7.7 percent increase from 3,746 in 2011, the National Law Journal reported.

The rankings are based on number of attorneys at firms.

DLA knocked Chicago’s Baker & McKenzie out of the top spot. Baker & McKenzie, which was first in NLJ’s 2011 rankings, came in second in the 2012 rankings, with 4,004 attorneys, up 5.2 percent from 2011.

DLA also came in first in a report by American Lawyer magazine, which ranked U.S. law firms by revenue. The firm had $2.44 billion in gross revenue, the magazine said.
