Allen & Overy today announces the promotion of 20 lawyers to partner across its global network, effective 1 May 2018.  The promotions are in 11 offices and cover five practice groups in the business. 

This is one of the most geographically widely spread new partner cohorts promoted by A&O in recent years, with 80% outside of London.  Of this, the largest group of promotions is in the Asia-Pacific region with seven new partners, five of whom are in Singapore and one in both Perth and Seoul.  Both the Banking and Corporate practices account for six new partners each globally, in addition to four in Litigation, three in International Capital Markets and one in Real Estate.
