Allen & Overy advised on 31% more deals than any other law firm in the world in 2018, the most recent league tables have revealed.  The data, which covers global DCM, ECM, M&A, loans and project finance transactions, also shows A&O as the second highest adviser in terms of deal value in 2018.

The result confirms that for the fifth year running, A&O sees more of the global economy than any other firm, providing its lawyers with unrivalled international insight to bring to bear on deals and enhance client service.
A&O senior partner Wim Dejonghe comments: “To be involved in the most global transactions gives us a greater understanding of the challenges and ambitions of our clients wherever they are in the world and in any sector.  Market leading organisations recognise A&O as advisers with a global, commercial perspective which can help to guide their businesses to greater success.”
