“One of the best law firms to work for”

With a global presence, and a highly prestigious client base, Allen & Overy presents many opportunities to develop your career, and evolve professionally. The workforce is treated on par with the management, with nice perks as well. There is good workplace diversity as well.

The hours can be long, and the work demanding. High pressure work, which is not necessarily very interesting all the time. A surprisingly large percentage of the staff is constantly leaving and getting replaced - this is both unsettling for employees, and also causes internal process slowdowns.

Secure law firm, with a diverse workforce.

“One of the better law firms around.”

Pros: This is a very well established company that offers its staff job security over the long term. The directors and senior managers ensure at all times that the offices are spick and span and a pleasure to work in. The salary is great and the extra benefits nothing to sniff at. A lot of young people interested in the law field, are finding their feet here.

Cons: If you’re not a lawyer or at least a legal secretary, the work can become mundane. Being an admin clerk is not going to be fulfilling over the long term.

Unusual thing: The company has offices in more than three continents.

Allen & Overy has led the market throughout its 80-year history. In 2012 we continue to bring new and original ways of thinking to the most complex legal challenges clients face. Over the past year we have advised on the largest ever Sukuk in Saudi Arabia and the first Saudi Sovereign Sukuk, the financing for the world’s largest solar plant in Arizona and took the lead role in the largest ever sovereign debt restructuring which was pivotal in the Eurozone crisis bailout package – to name just a few market-leading achievements. So although we have a long heritage, there’s nothing old-fashioned about our thinking. It’s because of our long history and huge experience that we have the confidence to think creatively, to take carefully calculated risks and to support new approaches to our client work. Over the years this approach has seen us build one of the largest international networks of any law firm, with 42 offices in 29 countries. Most recently we have broken new ground and invested in offices in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Casablanca and Istanbul. We also continue to develop our network of associate law firms in 100 other countries, regularly bringing them together with our own lawyers and clients to share ideas and strengthen working ties. So when we talk about global coverage, we’re not just talking about having offices in some important cities around the world. We mean being able to pull together all our resources and direct them to what our clients need in almost any country, at any time.
