Trent Dykes

I am an employment attorney in DLA Piper's Austin office. I work with local startups, emerging companies and established multinationals on a wide variety of employment and HR matters.

Although each of our clients has different aims, they all need people to further their business goals. I love helping our clients solve their unique personnel issues, both within the US and abroad, so they can continue to grow and attract top talent. To that end, I counsel clients on all aspects of the employment relationship — from selecting and hiring the perfect candidates, to managing their workforces, to weighing termination and post-termination considerations. I also regularly advise on employee matters in cross-border M&A transactions. 

I am an Austin native and a UT School of Law graduate. Outside of the office, you can find me running around Lady Bird Lake with my dog Jasper, cheering on the Longhorns or checking out live music with my friends and family.
