Learning and development

The A&O Leadership Centre equips the next generation of leaders with the business skills to drive success, inspire others, encourage innovation and develop deeper and more strategic relationships with our clients. The Centre offers a combination of programmes, master classes, personal coaching, mentoring and access to relevant experience and opportunities, so you can tailor your personal development to your own needs and aspirations.

In the Moscow office we have regular training seminars where lawyers have an opportunity to discuss issues arising from new developments in law and judicial practice. Here we share expertise in applying innovative solutions to challenging structures and transactions brought to market by our clients.

Once a year we arrange a 'legal away day' – an offsite event held in various locations in Russia and Europe. In the course of the day, our lawyers listen to expert guest speakers and colleagues on 'hot' legal topics, participate in discussions about our marketing initiatives and strategic priorities, and improve their legal, technical and business skills through various interactive exercises. After intensive training during the day, everyone has the opportunity to relax and enjoy different creative activities, free time and a dinner party.

Participation in our bi-annual international secondment programme allows our lawyers to enhance their international experience by spending six months or more in one of our other offices.
