Allen & Overy’s projects group dominates in the half-year league tables

The Dealogic and Infrastructure Journal half-year (1H) league table results have been published, with Allen & Overy ranking first in each publication’s league tables by both value and volume.

Dealogic reported that Allen & Overy advised on more than $20bn (£12bn) of deals (more than double that of its nearest competitor) with a global market share of 14 per cent.

Infrastructure Journal (measuring with slightly different criteria) reported that Allen & Overy advised on some $30bn of transactions ($10bn more than its nearest competitor) with a market share of 13.5 per cent.

Allen & Overy advised on each of the three biggest deals to close globally in 1H 2014 (Roy Hill, Ma’aden Waad and Star Refinery).
