About McAllister Olivarus
We’re a transatlantic law firm headquartered near London, with offices in the United States.
We help clients who have faced unfair treatment at work, at their universities, from government agencies and online. We also help employees change jobs and employers to manage people effectively and legally. We deal frequently with cases of defamation, discrimination and harassment.
Discrimination can come in many forms based on gender, race, sex, sexual preference, pregnancy, religion, nationality and many others. We have won lawsuits and secured substantial settlements on behalf of junior employees and senior executives at major companies and banks; professors and students at universities; lawyers at major firms; doctors at leading medical schools; and others.
Leaders in the field of online abuse, we repair the damage done to reputations and careers by online attacks: anonymous defamation, cyber-bullying, image-based sexual abuse (“revenge porn”).
Our sister firm, AO Advocates, achieves justice for survivors of historic child abuse. We focus particularly on cases with an international element, for example where the survivor now lives in a different country from the abuser or from the organization that employed the abuser.
We seek to deliver justice for individuals – and one case at a time, we hope to make the world better.
