Allen & Overy named best law firm by IFLR
For the second year running, Allen & Overy has been awarded the title of Best Luxembourg Law Firm by the International Financial Law Review (IFLR). The firm received this award both in 2007 and 2009. Factors influencing IFLR’s choice include recommendations by clients, innovation and the complexity of transactions.
The IFLR Europe Awards recognise the best law firms in each European jurisdiction. They particularly reward cross-border activity in the following domains: business law, mergers and acquisitions, finance and the capital markets.
Henri Wagner, Managing Partner at Allen & Overy, considers that high quality legal advice is more important than ever. The award encourages them to continue placing the client at the centre of their work.
Marc Feider, Senior Parnter, adds that in 2009 the firm concentrated on deepening its relations with clients and forming partnerships.
Allen & Overy employs 5,000 people, of which nearly 2,750 lawyers, spread across 33 offices worldwide. The Luxembourg office has more than 80 lawyers specialising in key areas of business law, amongst which banking and finance, capital markets, tax and mergers & acquisitions.
