DLA makes new round of layoffs in Middle East as market slumps
DLA Piper has made a new round of job cuts in the Middle East, with the firm set to make another 9% of staff in the region redundant in response to the continued deterioration in the markets. The latest round of cuts, which follow a review of the business, equate to seven lawyers and 10 support staff losing their jobs with effect from Monday (7 December). The firm did not provide a breakdown of the job losses but said the majority of the layoffs were in Dubai and affected the construction, real estate, project finance and development projects teams.
