A global legal practice, specialising in the provision of legal services to leading companies, financial institutions and governments worldwide.
Our success is built on the work of talented and motivated people who thrive in a supportive and collaborative environment, dedicated to delivering an exceptional standard of work for our clients. We’re ambitious and forward-thinking, committed to growing our business and meeting the future head-on. We’re not afraid of change, and we believe in challenging the status quo.
We are a firm of over 5,000 people, across more than 40 offices. Clients increasingly need global service providers. In Australia, we are one of only a few firms currently able to provide an integrated regional and global offering. We offer the market a unique service – a focused local practice combined with the knowledge of our global network and the ability to offer a single sign off across key international jurisdictions.
Much of the work performed by lawyers in Australia involves cross-border deals such as listings for Australian clients, inbound investment by international clients and outbound investment by Australian clients. Our offices in Sydney and Perth focus on the areas of law where we offer the greatest value and expertise to our clients: all aspects of Banking/International Capital Markets, Corporate/M&A and Litigation
Life at Allen & Overy (A&O) is about more than just the work we do. Our team environment encourages both professional and social relationships. Being involved in cutting-edge, high profile deals with clients who are household names means there’s no doubt you’ll work hard, but at A&O we help you to balance that with fun social, cultural and sporting activities.
