Law firm Allectus launches

by Silvia Saccardi 5 September 2023

Law firm Allectus has launched in London, founded by corporate partner Angeli Arora.

Allectus aims to offer private equity firms advisory services with a senior-led approach.

The practice can provide GPs with outsourced general counsel services.

Arora is a former Mishcon de Reya partner and has previously established the Hong Kong practice at legacy firm Bingham McCutchen, as well as having led the African private equity and investment funds team at Dentons.

She has experience advising GPs on complex cross-border investments across 70 jurisdictions.

Arora spoke to The Drawdown to explain how Allectus can help GPs operationally. She said: “The aim of Allectus is to bring back the personalised approach to lawyering. This is especially critical for GPs who do not have a GC function. Because we get to know our client’s business (and look for fewer clients with whom we can build a more long-term relationship), we end up acting as ‘quasi GC’ and protecting the long-term interests of the fund.”
