Allen & Overy: Associate roles

Allen and Overy

In the last 15 years Allen & Overy has become a truly international practice, opening offices in all key international financial centres, branching out into newly emerging legal markets, and merging with leading firms on the European continent. Today, more than half the firm's revenues are from outside the UK.

Over the years we have helped shape and been involved in many ground-breaking developments in the legal field. We advised on the first ever hostile takeover in the City of London, drafted the first ever Eurobond in the 1960s and have taken the lead on creating many innovative structures in all core areas of our practice.

A strong and growing international dimension prompted us to become one of the first UK practices to establish international offices. We opened our first in Dubai in January 1978.

If there's one thing that sums up the way we go about serving our clients, it's our belief that outstanding things happen when the best minds work together. We foster diverse viewpoints so that we can draw on a constant stream of new ideas to solve the toughest legal issues our clients face, wherever they are in the world.

Over the years, this approach has seen us grow from a London-based law firm into a truly global practice with 38 offices in 26 countries. An ability to spot changing trends and adapt to them quickly has underpinned that growth.

Although we have a long heritage, there’s nothing old-fashioned about our thinking. We have the confidence to think creatively, to take carefully calculated risks and to support new approaches in our client work. We have created a collaborative culture where talented individuals, working together, can truly flourish and achieve great things - imaginative, independent thinking is not just encouraged, it's expected.
