Former Counsel Nicole Daniel has been promoted to a Partner position in DLA Piper's Austrian office.
Daniel is a member of DLA Piper’s Litigation and Regulatory group in Vienna. She first joined the firm in 2010 as an Intern and was promoted to Senior Associate and Counsel in 2018 and 2021, respectively. Between 2012 and 2018, Daniel was also a Research Fellow at Stanford Law School.
"We’re delighted to see Nicole appointed partner and offer our warmest congratulations," DLA Piper Country Managing Partner Christoph Mager commented. "Nicole has been a great professional and human asset to our Litigation and Regulation practice and to the entire firm for many years. As a multi-admitted lawyer who values interaction with international clients and colleagues, she exemplifies DLA Piper’s values."
"I’m very happy to have been appointed partner at DLA Piper," Daniel added. "The firm has been my professional home since I started as an intern in the fall of 2010. I’m looking forward to further developing together. I would like to pay particular attention to the promotion of young talent as well as to the topic of diversity – two areas in which our firm is increasingly perceived as a role model and which are very important to me personally."
According to DLA Piper, the move wraps up the firm's CEE Partner promotion round, with a total of six appointed partners. CEE Legal Matters also covered the firm's other May 2023 partner appointments, in Poland, Hungary, and Romania. "Altogether, DLA Piper has 62 partners and 300 lawyers in six CEE offices: Bratislava, Bucharest, Budapest, Prague, Vienna, and Warsaw. The six CEE Partner promotions are part of a larger intake of 72 lawyers promoted to partnership across all of the firm’s practice areas, spanning 43 offices in 20 countries," the firm announced.
