About Allens

Allens is a leading international law firm and through our global alliance with Linklaters, we offer clients a global network of 40 offices in 28 locations.

We have been named an elite "band one" firm in 17 practice areas in Australia by Chambers Asia Pacific 2020. Last year, we were also awarded Law Firm of the Year (> 500 employees) at the Australasian Law Awards. This achievement caps off a year of working with clients on some of Australia's largest and most complex deals.

This is a time of unprecedented change. At Allens, we're ready. With a legacy that spans 200 years, we've pioneered significant change. It's a part of who we are.

Our people go further to support our clients, using sharp commercial insight and creativity to enrich long‑standing relationships and build new ones. We go further for each other and our community. We're people you want to work with: we're generous with our time and ready to help. No matter what the future holds, we're in it together.

With us, you'll be one step ahead. Great change is here. Are you ready?
