Mentoring scheme now includes London litigators and other senior figures following pilot success

Allen & Overy (A&O) has expanded its reverse mentoring scheme to include more offices and practice areas, as it focuses on improving career progression for its lawyers.

The scheme was launched as a pilot in autumn 2016, with the firm’s eight-strong board and people and performance board of 12 being reverse mentored by more junior lawyers.
