The law firm in Luxembourg was founded in 1990 and merged in 2000 with Allen & Overy in order to integrate with one of the most prestigious law firms of the British Magic Circle. Their international network and sound local knowledge enables them to provide their clients with a consistent and first-rate service. That means giving them intelligent advice across corporate/M&A, tax, banking/finance, intellectual property and information technology, regulatory, investment funds and asset management, capital markets, real estate, employment, and insurance law. Today, Allen & Overy is positioned as one of the largest and certainly most international law firms in Luxembourg, with a full-service “one-stop-shop” offering and experts in every relevant area of the law.
Allen & Overy is an active and engaged player across all aspects of the Blockchain / DLT market – they began looking at the legal aspects of blockchain and cryptocurrencies several years ago, when prospective use cases were theoretical at best. In the intervening period they have engaged with their clients and with a wide range of market participants to follow emerging developments and contribute their perspectives on how existing and emerging legal and regulatory frameworks might be applied to new business models built on distributed ledger technology.
Allen & Overy was proud to be the first law firm to join the Infrachain initiative in May 2017, as a founding member.
