Our culture

Allen & Overy Amsterdam is the only Dutch legal practice that actively and successfully combines the practice groups Disputes & Litigation, Banking & Capital Markets and Corporate Transactions & Governance.


These three pillars are fully integrated within our firm.Our office is unique because we combine our legal knowledge with a keen commercial understanding.


We offer extensive training programs to train lawyers to advise both on a legal and strategic level. Our partners also invest time in training, and pass on their knowledge and experience to others.


From you we expect that you can match your legal expertise with business wise thinking and behaviour. This means that you not only know the law, but also the sector in which your client operates. You must be pragmatic and inventive and always respond to new developments. In short, you can see further than the end of your legal nose.


Life at Allen & Overy Amsterdam is about much more than the work we do. We also attach great importance to social activities. Do not miss the team outings, Friday afternoon drinks in our bar and the fun St Nicholas and Christmas parties.
