Law firm DLA Piper poaches data scientists to capitalise on AI boom

DLA Piper, one of the world's largest law firms, has poached 10 data scientists to advise clients on the use of artificial intelligence, as regulators draft policies to police the technology.

  • DLA Piper has poached 10 data scientists from a smaller rival to advise clients on the use of artificial intelligence, as regulators across the world draft policies to police the rapidly expanding technology.
  • A new unit at the multinational firm will be boosted by the arrival of Bennett Borden, a former CIA official who used data analytics and machine learning.
  • The new unit will help large companies and governments develop AI systems or algorithmic models and navigate new laws.
  • DLA will also use generative AI to help its own lawyers with mundane research and writing assignments.
  • Politicians have scrambled to introduce laws that will govern the evolving technology, with legislation such as the EU’s AI Act expected to come into force later this year.
