La Porte de l'Europe welcomes Allen & Overy as firm opens up new space in Luxembourg,
After 918 days, Allen & Overy’s 200 lawyers and support staff in Luxembourg are able to walk through the doors of their new offices in Luxembourg. A symbolic laying of the first stone was done in April 2017 in the presence of Luxembourg prime minister Xavier Bettel.
Located on Kennedy Avenue for more than ten years, A&O has grown its working environment grow in size and provided more opportunities for flexible working. Patrick Mischo, senior partner of Allen & Overy in Luxembourg comments “It seemed fundamental to us to rethink the working environment of our teams by making optimal working conditions a priority for each employee, which is why we have designed a work space where collaboration and concentration coexist. We are convinced that through this creative mix the most ambitious projects will be formed.” The firm’s new headquarters are part of the Infinity complex, an exceptional project designed by the American architectural firm Arquitectonica, which redefines the business district’s skyline. Frank Mausen, managing partner of Allen & Overy in Luxembourg emphasised “We are committed to continuing this quest for excellence in providing services to our clients: their requirements are at the heart of our actions and stimulate our initiatives.”
Covered by a terrace with a panoramic view of the Philharmonie and the wider city, the offices offer eight floors of modernity and innovation. A&O's lawyers and staff are able to navigate through spaces that adapt to their needs; if collaboration and communication are required, break-out rooms and meeting rooms are made available to them on each floor in the centre of the building. On the other hand, when concentration is required, staff can make use of silent workspaces; the building is thus fully integrated into the work dynamic. This move is part of the development of A&O's activities and aims to offer its clients an unparalleled experience.
