105 DLA Piper attorneys get Chambers' rankings; firm launches Poland office
DLA Piper attorneys have made the firm proud. As many as 105 top-notch lawyers of the firm have made it to the ranks of the fifth annual Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business publication. The firm has also been named as a leader in business law, the climb since last year marks nearly 46% which saw only 72 lawyers.
Additionally, three more of the firm's practice groups are ranked in the top tier, up from 11 groups last year to 14 this year. The rankings are based on extensive research conducted by Chambers and Partners Legal Publishers. DLA Piper has 3,400 lawyers globally in 25 countries and 63 offices practicing in corporate, finance, human resources, litigation, and real estate, among many others.
Meanwhile in another move, the firm has appointed three Polish partners to lead its new office in Warsaw. Two of the new hires, Krzysztof Wiater and Pawel Grzejszczak, join DLA Piper from Squire, Sanders & Dempsey's Warsaw office. Michal Zieniewski, the third partner, will join DLA Piper from the Warsaw office of CMS Cameron McKenna.

Mother's new way of punishing her daughter
"I don't obey my parents, I'm a liar. I steal from my mom. I have a bad attitude." This is what Tashara Wilkins, 13, had to tell people through her attention-getting sign put on by her, by her mother. It seems the Tennessee mother got too tired of reprimanding the daughter, that she had no other way out, than making her daughter stand on a busy street corner and undergo the public humiliation. Speaking to a TV channel on her deliberate attempt to humiliate Tashara publicly, the Tennessee mother said, "I hope this works for her. I love my child. I could be beating her to death, but I'm not." On her part, Tashara said that the punishment was an absolute eye-opener. It might help her in behaving in a better manner, as she does not like standing out there with everybody staring at her. The mother even made it a point to take her daughter to church wearing the sign. We can only pray that Tashara's difficult times end soon.
I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
