International legal practice Allen & Overy has announced the promotion of 34 lawyers to partner, effective from May 1. The new partners span six practice areas, with eleven new partners in Corporate, nine in Banking, six in Litigation, four in ICM, two in Real Estate, one in Tax, and one in Fuse, the firm’s tech innovation space, with Head of Fuse Shruti Ajitsaria becoming partner.

This is one of the most geographically widespread groups of new partners, with 59 per cent outside London and a total of 16 of the firm’s offices represented. Additionally, 24 per cent of the new partners are female and two are part-time partners.

“The breadth of this group, both in expertise and geographically, is testament to the growth we are seeing across our global platform,” said global managing partner Andrew Ballheimer. “It’s fantastic to have such a depth of talent across the firm and I would like to extend the warmest welcome to the partnership to all our new partners.”

In Vietnam, Ms. Tina Le Dinh, M&A and capital markets lawyer from the Ho Chi Minh City office, has been promoted to partner. Ms. Dinh was voted “Rising Star in Corporate” at the most recent Euromoney Asia Women in Business Law Awards.

Ms. Dinh specializes in cross-border M&A and International Capital Market transactions. She is New York-qualified and has over eleven years of experience in Vietnam. She joined Allen & Overy as an associate in 2013 from a leading Vietnamese law firm and now becomes a corporate partner in the Ho Chi Minh City office.

She has advised on a succession of precedent-setting and high-profile equity offerings by Vietnamese issuers, including Vietnam’s biggest flotation to date - Vinhomes’ Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange listing.

She is part of Allen & Overy’s Emerging Female Leaders group and is at the forefront of identifying and addressing issues critical to the engagement, retention, and success of female lawyers at the firm. In addition to her professional work, Ms. Dinh also serves as Vice-Chairwoman of Operation Smile Vietnam, which is part of a global organization that repairs childhood facial deformities.

Allen & Overy is an international legal practice with approximately 5,500 people, including some 550 partners, working in 44 offices worldwide.
