Allen & Overy


We are one of a small group of truly international and integrated law firms with approximately 5,500 staff, including over 500 partners, working in 31 major centres worldwide.

The tree analogy best illustrates what Allen & Overy must achieve to be global: broad international cover with deep local roots.

We must be present in those locations which are the source or destination of the major international capital flows and in the financial centres that handle those flows. But we must also build deep, well-informed and well-connected local law practices in those locations which allow us to assist global and national clients alike. That is a strategy which only a handful of law firms is successfully pursuing at the highest level.

As a law firm, we are interested in fairness. That is why ‘justice around the world’ is the theme we have adopted to express our commitment to behaving responsibly. It reflects our belief that everyone deserves fair treatment.
