Trilegal links up with Allen & Overy in India

March 10, 2008 Local Indian law firm Trilegal has succeeded in sealing a formal referral deal with Magic Circle law firm Allen & Overy, which will see it handle the bulk of A&O's cross-border client work in India and benefit from training, consulting and joint marketing. Trilegal's deal positions the firm as A&O's local arm in India, although no actual profit-sharing is involved.

The arrangement follows a similar "non-exclusive" alliance struck by Linklaters in 2006 with Mumbai-based firm Talwar Thakore & Associates. Other firms, such as White & Case, have preferred to develop relationships with a variety of firms.
