International law firm promotes 24 partners 


Allen & Overy today announces the promotion of 24 lawyers to partner across its global network, the largest number since 2008. Effective as of 1 May 2017, unless otherwise indicated, the promotions are across 11 offices in 10 countries covering six practice groups in the business.

The majority of the promotions are outside London (58%); almost one third of the new partners are in Asia-Pacific (seven), three of whom are in Sydney, with another seven spanning a number of our European offices outside of the UK. One third of the new partners are in the Corporate practice (eight), followed by Banking (six) and International Capital Markets and Litigation (four each). There is one new partner in both the Real Estate and Tax practices.

Managing partner Andrew Ballheimer comments: “We’ve had a very busy year and are investing strongly across our network. Following a string of high profile lateral hires, it’s fantastic to be able to promote some of our most senior lawyers to meet client demand. It gives me great pleasure to welcome each of the candidates to the partnership and I would like to congratulate them on reaching this milestone in their career.”
