Tim House U.S. senior partner of Allen & Overy congratulated the firm’s practice groups for their recognition, stating, “A&O’s U.S. business has made a concerted effort to grow across core practice areas that derive strength from a global platform because clients’ demands are globally interconnected. Chambers’ USA rankings this year demonstrate the effectiveness of this strategy. As our firm grows rapidly in the U.S. by continuing to draw the best talent to the firm, we’re thankful to all our U.S. colleagues for their commitment to our clients and each other and to our US and global clients for trust and their encouragement in our strategy.”

Based in London, Chambers and Partners ranks leading U.S. firms and attorneys based on in-depth research and interviews with attorneys’ clients and peers. Chambers assesses attorneys on attributes most valued by clients, including technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, and commitment. Most attorneys are ranked in bands of 1-6, with all band rankings considered to be a significant achievement. Some attorneys earn specialized Chambers designations including “Senior Statesperson,” which indicates an attorney who no longer works hands-on with the same intensity but remains pivotal to the success of the firm, and “Star” individual, which is awarded to lawyers with exceptional recommendations in their fields. The Chambers USA guide is widely read by industry-leading companies and organizations nationwide. For more information, visit https://www.chambersandpartners.com.
