As winners of the ‘Most Innovative Law Firm in Europe’ at the Financial Times Innovative Lawyer Awards 2018, Allen & Overy’s ability to provide its clients with legal solutions that are often revolutionary in their client’s fields distinguishes it as the Law firm leading the way to a digitally native age.
The creation of London’s first and only legal technology innovation space, Fuse, by Shruti Ajitsaria has not only been key in implementing A&O’s unique advanced delivery initiative by helping clients achieve better value for money, but has recently executed the world’s first fully automated cryptocurrency denominated bond issuance. The first of its kind transaction in collaboration with FinTech company and entrepreneurs-in-residence at Fuse, Nivaura, was issued by luxury retail startup, LuxDeco, in order to give them a new way to raise capital for the short term financing of their seasonal inventory. The transaction is perhaps most astounding because of its potential to give SMEs access to capital markets for a lower cost, where previously the high cost of such transactions had been preventative, and is likely to be a contributing factor to A&O’s recent accolade of ‘Financial Services Regulatory Team of the Year 2018’.
