Allen & Overy elects new partner to Tokyo corporate M&A practice
Allen & Overy has announced the election of Nick Wall as a partner in its Tokyo corporate and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) practice.
Wall joins Allen & Overy from Freshfields, where he has spent the past 11 years primarily advising on inbound and outbound M&A transactions for international and Japanese clients. Wall has also spent time on secondment in Freshfields’ London office doing international M&A work.
A graduate of Hitotsubashi University’s faculty of law, Wall is fluent in Japanese, which builds out further the firm’s Japanese-speaking M&A capability. He is a registered foreign lawyer in Japan and a member of the Daini Tokyo Bar Association, licensed to practice English law in Japan.
