About Allen & Overy

At a time of huge change in the legal industry, Allen & Overy are determined to continue leading the market as they have throughout their 83-year history. They will do that by staying one step ahead and by constantly challenging themselves to bring new and original ways of thinking to the most complex legal challenges their clients face.

Over the past year Allen & Overy have worked with some of the world’s most sophisticated businesses on market-leading transactions that have changed their industries. This includes: advising on the largest oil refinery project in Vietnam (Nghi Son) and the joint venture between H.C. Starck and Vietnam’s largest private sector company, Masan Group; advising on the groundbreaking creation of Abu Dhabi’s first financial free zone, the Abu Dhabi Global Market; and representing Novartis in its successful patent battle with MedImmune over Novartis’ blockbuster drug Lucentis – to name just a few achievements. They are able to build on the foundations of their long heritage to attract the most talented people and develop the high-performance culture necessary to innovate and change the face of business.

Allen & Overy's commitment to help their clients deliver their global strategies has seen them build a truly global network now spanning 46 offices in 32 countries. They have also developed strong ties with relationship law firms in more than 100 countries where they do not have a presence. This network has allowed them to become one of the largest and most connected law firms in their peer group, with a global reach and local depth that is simply unrivalled. So when they talk about global coverage, they are not just talking about having offices in some important cities around the world. They mean being able to combine their international resources and sector expertise to work on cross-border transactions directly in the markets and regions important to their clients.
