Allen & Overy advised on more deals during 2019 than any other law firm in the world. According to data from Refinitiv and Dealogic, A&O advised on 17% more deals than its nearest competitor across global DCM, ECM, M&A, loans and project finance.

The data also shows that A&O was the second highest adviser in terms of deal value in 2019 and one of only two firms to have surpassed the USD1 trillion mark, advising on deals totalling USD1.16 trillion.

The result confirms that, for the sixth year running, A&O's lawyers have unrivalled international insight to bring to bear on deals which enhances client service.

A&O senior partner Wim Dejonghe comments: “Advising on more than USD1 trillion worth of global transactions in one year is not only a great achievement for our firm, it also proves that clients come to us because of the greater understanding we have of the challenges and ambitions they face, wherever they are in the world and in any sector.”
