A long-term relationship between client and law firm – more than 100 years

Recently, when Chalco boosted its stake in the Rio Tinto Group, Rio Tinto turned to that Australian firm of Allens Arthur Robinson in the firm’s capacity as legal advisors. As reported in Asian Legal Bus., Vol. 7, April 2009 at 8. Not surprisingly …

“The relationship between Allens as external advisors and the in-house team at Rio is one which the firm had developed over the course of their role as counsel to the company for over 100 years. ‘We are able to bring a lot of corporate memory to the table,’ said one of the Allens partners.”

Indeed. A century of representation!
