DLA Piper Merges with Liner LLP

DLA Piper will be merging with Liner LLP , a Los Angeles-based boutique, effective October 1. Liner was established in 1996 to focus on litigation, real estate, restructuring, and business transactions.
DLA Piper’s global co-chairman and co-chairman for the Americas Roger Meltzer said, “Liner has developed a strong independent reputation over the past 20 years, representing a range of clients in diverse practices and industry sectors. They are fiercely entrepreneurial and committed to providing legal services in innovative and transformative ways, as evidenced by their ability to recruit top-notch talent, including many preeminent practitioners from the Am Law 100. They are a perfect fit with DLA Piper and they will be an important strategic linchpin for us in the region and across our platform as we help them extend their practices nationally and globally.”
Liner has around 60 lawyers that will add to DLA Piper’s numbers in downtown Los Angeles and Century City. They bring extensive experience in real estate, entertainment, private equity and new media. This combination will put DLA Piper in the top 15 largest firms in LA.
Liner managing partner Stuart Liner said, “We are excited about the opportunity to help build, under the DLA Piper umbrella, an even stronger presence in Southern California, Silicon Beach and beyond. This merger will give us the ability to provide our clients with the services offered by DLA Piper in New York and other important national markets, and to capitalize on their strengths and depth of practice in areas like M&A, private equity, finance, infrastructure and sports. From the beginning of our discussion, there has been an obvious cultural fit between our firms’ respective approaches to the business of law and we have been incredibly impressed with DLA Piper’s visionary leadership.”
