Allen & Overy is to open a second Advanced Delivery Centre, located in Australia, to provide technology-enabled support on areas such as due diligence, document review and eDiscovery, regulatory-filings, as well as general transaction management.
The centre, which is expected to open in the second quarter of 2022, will be comprised of legal support professionals and associates as well as dedicated project management and eDiscovery specialists. It builds on the success of A&O Belfast, which opened in 2011, and will allow A&O to provide follow-the-sun, integrated support to A&O colleagues globally.
Angela Clist, partner and head of Advanced Delivery – Legal Services, said: “A&O Belfast has quickly enabled us as a firm to build a leading reputation for providing clients with a cost-effective, tightly-integrated resourcing option while guaranteeing the high standards and innovative solutions they expect from A&O. I am excited to add our new centre in Perth as we continue to innovate in client service delivery.”
