Allens

About us

Allens is an international law firm with offices throughout Australia and Asia.

Our clients

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.

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

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:

  • Excellence
  • Integrity
  • Respect
  • Performance
  • One firm
