A&O sets sights on US expansion
Allen & Overy is planning to expand IP litigation capabilities into the US as part of a broader international expansion effort. The firm has already begun expanding patent litigation resources in London and Germany.
A&O has not confirmed whether its US plan includes any mergers. According to IP litigation practice head Nicola Dagg, expanding in the US is a strategic move intended to establish a local base for valued clients in the life sciences sector.
