Allens

About us

Allens is a leading international law firm. Together with Linklaters, our global network spans 40 offices across 28 countries.

Named Australian Law Firm of the Year (Chambers Asia Pacific, 2017) we make it our business to know our clients' businesses. We have built our reputation on the quality of our people, the strength of our client relationships and our innovative approach to complex work. We combine technical excellence with commercial understanding to provide the best insights and whether you're a global multinational or a start-up with a bright idea, our commitment to outstanding service is the same.

Innovation

We are committed to knowing our clients, understanding their business needs and collaborating to find solutions that meet their needs. Each client is unique, so the way we provide advice isn't 'one size fits all'. We recognise that a great solution will vary, depending on the focus of your business, the sector you work in, and the unique challenges you face.

Our values

Our values reflect our strong heritage and our desired future.

  • Driven by excellence
    Everything we do, from delivering client work to interacting with one another, is done to the highest possible standard of quality and integrity. We strive to do the best and to be the best.
  • Fostering greatness
    We build each other up. We take pride in, and celebrate, the diversity of our team. We treat each other with respect and honesty. We work to make ourselves and each other the best we can be.
  • In it together
    Greatness is a team sport, and it’s baked into how we operate. We are at our best when we work together. We all participate not spectate, share our views and get involved in every aspect of the firm. Whether we’re working in multi-disciplinary teams with our colleagues, or partnering with our clients, every challenge is something in which we are all invested.
  • Courageous and creative
    We are bold and challenge the status quo. We aren’t afraid to experiment. We solve the problems others can’t because we are willing to look at things from new angles and challenge conventional thinking. We know that integrity sometimes takes courage.
  • Eyes on the horizon
    We look to the future and see the big picture, spotting new challenges and opportunities, helping our clients and ourselves prepare for what’s to come.
