Allen & Overy is set to become the first magic circle firm to convert to a UK limited-liability partnership (LLP). The Lawyer understands that, subject to a partnership vote, conversion could take place by the end of this financial year, although it is possible that not all of the firm will initially transfer to LLP status.
