Innovation and LegalTech

Innovation is about more than just technology. It's part of our culture to work together to innovate and co-create solutions to ensure we are delivering real, tangible results.

We've made bold changes that enable us to accelerate our efforts in relation to innovation through our  'Innovation and Digital Solutions' group.  However innovation is not confined to a single team or function, but is an integrated effort across the firm. Our lawyers work collaboratively with technologists, project managers, business teams and every team member is encouraged to contribute new ideas. We equip our lawyers with the skills and experience they need to be the lawyers of the future.

Our people are technical experts, but they’re also trusted business advisers who think bigger, more broadly and more strategically. Together, we aim to play a leadership role in advancing the legal industry. We ensure our business processes support us to be modern, innovative and efficient while exploring areas beyond traditional law such as adjacent products and services aligned with core business and clients' needs.

This is where you fit in.

A career at Allens can give you all that and more. Just ask Melbourne Innovation Program Coordinator, Amanda Podbury.

A pioneering culture

Culture can be a tricky thing to put your finger on from the outside. We've had almost 200 years to build ours, and it's what we think makes Allens such a great place to build a career.

At Allens, you'll work at the cutting edge of the law on the most complex and innovative deals in the market. You'll work with lawyers and professionals at the top of their game who, like you, strive to get a little better every day. And you'll be supported to take your career wherever you want it to go.
