A&O finally welcomes Paris rainmaker

Allen & Overy (A&O) has snagged Parisian banking star Jonathan Nabarro as the former Ashurst partner joins the magic circle firm today (May 10).

Nabarro surprised the Paris legal market back in March when it emerged that he was preparing to leave Ashurst. Although a number of firms has attempted to recruit the banking partner, A&O quickly stood-out as the lead contender.

At A&O, Nabarro will focus on leveraged finance, working closely with its acquisition finance and private equity lawyers.
