DLA Piper announced Tuesday that it is laying off 20 lawyers and 34 staff across its Asian offices in response to "the deteriorating economic climate." The product of several mergers of regional American and British firms, DLA Piper has in recent years built up one of the largest Asia practices of any international law firm. The new cuts come weeks after the firm announced sweeping layoffs in the U.S. and the U.K.
