About ALLEN & OVERY
Allen & Overy is a pioneering legal practice operating around the world at the frontline of developing business. By helping companies, institutions and governments tackle ever more complex issues and transactions on a global stage, it is leading the way and extending what is possible in law.
With 43 offices in 30 countries, plus a network of relationship firms in other locations, Allen & Overy is one of the few legal practices that can genuinely claim to be global, covering 99% of the world’s economy. For the firm’s clients this means global reach and access to high-calibre, local expertise, while for trainees, it means exposure to international work, collaboration with colleagues in other offices and, in many cases, the opportunity to travel.
Trainee lawyers joining the firm enter an environment characterised by advanced thinking and a global outlook. They are exposed to challenging and meaningful work from the outset, supporting a partner or senior associate in each of their training ‘seats’. In addition, they are encouraged to spend six months in one of the firm’s overseas offices, or on secondment to one of its corporate clients – currently around 80% of its trainees take up this opportunity.
Alongside a rich and exciting experience as a trainee, graduates can also look forward to working in a uniquely open and supportive culture. Allen & Overy has established a reputation for combining the very highest professional standards with warmth and approachability.
Regardless of their degree discipline – and around half of the firm’s trainees study subjects other than law – joining Allen & Overy puts graduates at the forefront of the rapidly-evolving global market for legal services.
