Allen & Overy is a multinational law firm headquartered in London.
At a time of significant change in the legal industry, we are determined to continue leading the market as we have done throughout our 87-year history.
We will do this by ensuring we always challenge ourselves to bring new and original ways of thinking to the complex legal challenges our clients face.
Building on our long heritage enables us to attract the most talented people and continue to deliver this level of innovation with and for our clients.
To support our clients’ international strategies, we have built a truly global network now spanning 44 offices in 31 countries. We have also developed strong ties with relationship law firms in over 100 countries where we do not have a presence. This network makes us one of the largest and most connected law firms in the world, with a global reach and local depth that is simply unrivalled.
Global coverage in today’s market does not simply mean having offices in important cities around the world. For us, it means combining our international resources and sector expertise to work on cross-border transactions directly in the markets and regions important to our clients.
Who we are
We’re a pre-eminent global law firm, operating in over thirty countries around the world.
We’re the only law firm to have featured in the top three of the Financial Times Innovative Law Firm ranking every year, and to have topped the list four times. Last year we worked for 87% of Forbes’ top 100 public companies and we promoted 24 new partners around the globe.
This success is built on the work of talented and motivated people who thrive in a supportive and collaborative environment, dedicated to delivering an exceptional standard of work for our clients. We’re ambitious and forward-thinking, committed to growing our business and meeting the future head-on. We’re not afraid of change, and we believe in challenging the status quo.
Our track record of innovation is second to none. From our expansion into new jurisdictions, flexible working practices, and our advanced delivery solutions such as Peerpoint and aosphere, we are setting the standard for what a global law firm should look like. We’re determined not just to be at the forefront of developments, but to set the pace and lead the way.
We’re proud to have the resources, the passion and the mindset to build solutions for the future, whatever it may hold.
With over five thousand people in more than forty offices, we’re a business doing work of global significance.
We’re one firm structured as seven global practices; over half of our transactions involve three or more jurisdictions, and nearly three-quarters of the work we do draws on the resources of two or more of our offices.
Throughout our eighty-six year history, we’ve led the market by finding new ways of meeting the challenges that our clients face. To deliver the standard of support that they expect, we draw on a world-leading base of expertise and on a range of tools – such as our Legal Services Centre and our network of over 150 Peerpoint consultants.
Whatever your area of expertise and wherever your ambitions lie, we can provide you with the scope to develop your career and the challenges to help you realise your full potential.
