Allen & Overy retains partner meant to leave

May 19, 2015 Allen & Overy made a successful bid to retain Bruno Soares, the firm’s only partner in São Paulo, two months after the announcement of his departure for US firm Paul Hastings. Soares is a banking and projects partner who has been with A&O for five years now.

Soares had intended to move to Paul Hastings on the promise of establishing the firms first Latin American office in São Paulo, alongside A&O’s Latin America co-chair Robert Kartheiser and capital markets group leader Cathleen McLaughlin.
