What makes this law firm different from our competitors? It's technical excellence combined with commercial insight. It's the ability to take the most complex questions and provide the clearest answers.
Our lawyers unashamedly love the law. But we understand clients don't want pages on what legislation says. They want succinct answers that achieve their commercial aims. To achieve this, we use our intellectual creativity to distil complexity and provide clear-cut solutions.
Allens has some of the world's longest ongoing client relationships, stretching back more than 150 years. It's a fact of which we are immensely proud and one we never take for granted.
We work with many of the world's leading organisations - including 55 of the world's top 100 companies and more than 75 of Australia's top 100 companies. Whether you're a global multinational or a suburban-based company with a bright idea, our commitment to providing excellent service remains the same: combining technical excellence with commercial insight to provide the clearest of answers.
Allens provides access to leading lawyers and resources throughout
Australia and Asia, covering all commercial issues, from acquisition finance to
workplace relations. We are praised for our innovative approach to
complex work and delivering market-leading solutions to clients.
You can find the right person with the right experience by using our expert search or review our areas of expertise.
Allens sees its values as a core part of the firm's approach.
They are not a series of warm words.
They do not live on a poster.
The firm undertakes an independent staff survey, which, in part, focuses on whether the firm's values are the right ones and if they are being lived on a day-to-day basis.
That survey shows near unanimous agreement on both those points.
Allens values are:
- One firm
