This article presents information on Allen & Overy which has recalled its entire Canary Wharf-based corporate team after what one source called a failed experiment in building corporate relationships with Canary Wharf's investment banks. Eight corporate partners and around 40 other staff are vacating a floor at Canary Wharf and returning to New Change. In their place, the firm's entire London-based projects group, comprising around 80 lawyers, is relocating to Canary Wharf. Litigation staff are also returning to New Change.
