Allen & Overy was the first global elite law firm to commence operations in Australia. Our practice now comprises 24 hand-selected, top-tier partners, each leaders in their field, with an average of 20 years' experience.
Our Australian operations in Sydney and Perth are fully integrated into Allen & Overy's global network. The offices offer a full suite of corporate, finance (debt and equity), litigation and antitrust services. Our team includes partners and lawyers who are proficient in numerous languages including Mandarin, Japanese, Indonesian, German, French and Spanish.
Allen & Overy Australia offers the best of both worlds: the expertise and resources of a global elite law practice coupled with a leading group of senior domestic practitioners. With ease, we are able to provide our clients with innovative and cost effective legal solutions around the clock.
Since our arrival, Allen & Overy has quickly established a track record of executing both complex, unique and strategic cross-border and domestic transactions.
As a global elite practice, Allen & Overy is at the cutting edge of international legal and commercial insights. Our teams are often advising on market developments and 'firsts' around the world. In addition to this first-hand experience, we have established a 'Global Intelligence Unit' to track trends and emerging legal and commercial issues and analyse what they mean for our clients.
We are committed to offering our clients in the Australian market the expertise of our international knowledge platform and impressive global office network.
