A&O rehires former financial regulatory head in London
Allen & Overy has rehired partner Bob Penn from Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton just two years after he departed from the firm.
Penn was a partner at A&O for nearly ten years, serving as the head of its non-contentious financial services regulation team. He originally joined the magic circle firm in 1999.
Penn’s return to the London office makes six financial regulatory partners based in London. Other recent hires to the team are Nick Bradbury of Herbert Smith Freehills and Ben Regnard-Weinrabe of Paul Hastings.
