A&O dresses down


Allen & Overy is
breaking with magic circle formality by offering staff the chance to dress down
five days a week.

The move affects only Allen & Overy’s London office, but head of
corporate Richard Cranfield believes that it will spread to the firm’s
international offices.

Brief guidelines on the “smart casual policy” have been issued to staff,
he says. “We are relying on people’s good sense. People know what smart casual
dress means.”

The
firm hopes the option will enable staff to be more in tune with clients in the
professional services and financial sectors, and increase comfort.
