This article focuses on a list of 100 Best Companies to Work For, released by The Sunday Times for the year 2005. DLA has sunk 53 places in this list. It was one of the highest ranked law firms at 35 in 2004, but the now-merged DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary languishes at 88 in this year's list. In 2003, it was the highest-placed law firm in the list at 16. Now, with a record 12 law firms in the charts, only the South-West's TLT stands below it. TLT made its first appearance in the list, finishing at 96. Olswang also made its debut in the charts, steaming in at number 40.
