A&O set to launch in Toronto
Allen & Overy has announced that it will launch its first office in Canada, with plans to open its doors in Toronto with just one partner and one associate.
The new branch will handle outbound investment work for Canadian clients, and would not be competing for local work. Domestic matters will be referred to A&O’s local network of firms.
The office will be headed by Senior Partner David Morley, who is originally from Canada. A spokesperson said: "We look forward to continuing to work with our local relationship firms on a referral basis and strengthening our ties with the Canadian market”.
