A&O creates new executive committee and client group
Allen & Overy (A&O) has created a new executive committee, the first of its kind at the firm. Additionally, the firm has launched a new client group that will function around industry sectors. Although the firm will continue to operate through its traditional practices, it is understood to be pushing for more of a sector-focused approach in the legal market.
Senior partner Wim Dejonghe and managing partner Andrew Ballheimer will co-chair the new executive committee, which will be responsible for crafting and implementing the firm’s strategy.
Both changes are the result of a recent consultation among the firm’s partnership.
