The UK will be the launch point and firm is now looking at how it can offer the new scheme in Europe and Asia. However, it is not planning to start the service at the moment in the US.  


DLA's director of service delivery and quality Stephen Allen told The Lawyer what DLA was aiming for and why it had chosen LOD as its partner: 'We wanted to be able to deliver something holistic and of high quality. Then it became clear first of all that they’ve got the longest track record, they’ve seen good steady growth.' Source: The Lawyer
