Emerging Markets

Many of our clients are seeking to maximise the opportunities presented by emerging economies and are in search of an unrivalled and worldwide legal network that can deliver flexible and complete coverage in high growth markets and beyond.

Across our global network, we have a number of fee earners with a dedicated focus on emerging markets, who work together in a 'coverage model' approach across product lines and sectors.

We cannot underestimate the importance of 'local' expertise on emerging markets transactions. Allen & Overy is one of a small number of firms that has embraced the ambition of being a truly global practice, with more than 40 offices spanning Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific, among others. In particular, we assist clients in BRIC countries through our offices in Brazil, Russia and China.

In the remaining emerging markets jurisdictions where we do not have offices, we have highly developed relationships with a dense international network of relationship firms. This network guarantees consistency in approach, uniformly high standards and ensures that Allen & Overy remains synonymous with advanced legal thinking. Should you wish to, you can benefit from this network through Allen & Overy recommending firms to you in jurisdictions where you do not already instruct local counsel.
