Deals Yearbook 2022: Alex Tilley, Allen & Overy – partner since 2020

What has been the absolute deal highlight of your career so far and why?
Advising Liberty Global on its fixed and mobile UK telecoms joint venture in the UK to create what is now Virgin Media O2. We negotiated the transaction over a relatively short period right at the start of the first Covid lockdown, and it was amazing to watch a huge team adapt and still find a way to get the deal agreed.
