A message from Co-US Managing Partners, Jackie Park and Rick Chesley
July 2020
Greetings Alumni,
Earlier this year, as we assumed the role of Co-US Managing Partners, the firm took aggressive actions in its COVID-19 response to protect the health and safety of our people, while at the same time identifying solutions that would allow us to continue to meet the needs of our clients as well as so many in our communities through our pro bono efforts. We did exactly that, and effectively overnight transitioned one of the world’s largest law firms to a fully remote work environment. So much has changed in the world in the last few months, but our commitment to our people as well as to both you and our communities at large remains unwavering. How we continue to engage and work together as peers, colleagues and friends is vital to our outlook and to our ability to bring our collective strength to bear on some of today’s most pressing health and social issues.

We encourage you to remain connected by joining our DLA Piper alumni platform. In this searchable database, you will find resources to support your personal and professional development and re-establish connections with your former colleagues and current DLA Piper lawyers. You will also be able to access information on upcoming webinars related to COVID-19 and other topics.

Until we are able to meet in person again, we invite you to learn more about us by clicking the links below. If there’s anything we can do for you in addition to these resources, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Thank you for your support, your contributions and your continued engagement with your colleagues at DLA Piper.

We look forward to continuing to get to know you as we reinforce this collaborative, innovative and inclusive community.
