The article reports that DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary is in advanced negotiations with EY Law Europe's four CIS offices as it prepares for a major assault on Eastern Europe. At the same time, the firm has acquired its 50th office worldwide following a raid on Atlanta's Alston & bird LLP. It is understood that DLA Piper is in advanced talks to acquire the entire CIS network of accountancy-tied EY Law, consisting of offices in Moscow, St Petersburg, Tbilisi and Kiev. Accountancy-tied legal networks have been crumbling since the introduction of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, but the CIS branch is regarded as one of the jewels in the EY Law crown.
