  Allen Leuta



Allen is a banking and finance counsel based in our Johannesburg office. He has significant experience in banking and finance transactions across a wide range of sectors with a focus on projects. Prior to returning to Allen & Overy, Allen was head of legal in the Africa region for Standard Bank Group where he was responsible for the global management of legal risk across all of the Standard Bank Group’s presence countries in Africa. In this capacity, he had management and oversight responsibility over 18 jurisdictions in Africa, including Mozambique.

Allen recently contributed to a PPA handbook “Understanding Power Purchase Agreements”, as part of a group of international experts brought together by the U.S Department of Commerce’s Commercial Law Development Program in partnership with ALSF. Published in November 2014, the handbook provides an overview of PPAs and the obligations, risks and remedies that are found within them.  The group of experts, all whom contributed their time on a pro-bono basis, also included contributors from governments, development banks and private banks including AfDB, the World Bank, OPIC and AFC.
