Going Overy the top…

In Hungary, Allen & Overy’s management seems to ­prefer getting its hands dirty directly. So much so that senior ­partner David Morley has named the firm’s local ­subsidiary Morley Allen & Overy Iroda. This is ­apparently a longstanding tradition in Hungary, as his ­predecessor Guy Beringer had christened the firm Beringer Allen & Overy Iroda.

Tulkinghorn is still deciding whether this is senior partner ­megalomania or an ­
archaic Hungarian legal ­requirement for naming law firms. How about ­Clifford Childs? Or ­Freshfields Burke-Morton-Mettenheimer, anyone?
