The roots of this Allens office go back to 1846, when Robert Little, a lifetime friend of George Wigram Allen, son of the founding Allen, settled in Brisbane and created a law firm.

As Feez Ruthning, the firm became one of Brisbane's leading commercial legal practices, merging with Allens in 1996.

Our Brisbane office has a particularly strong basis in natural resources, infrastructure, property development and corporate work, and a powerful track record in advising the State Government.

Our experience includes advising:

  • the Queensland Government's Projects Queensland on the procurement of the State's $457 million Government Wireless Network (GWN) project;
  • GoldLinQ on its bid to finance, design, build, operate and maintain the A$1 billion Gold Coast Rapid Transit PPP, a 13-kilometre light rail network and associated infrastructure. This is one of Australia's first public transport PPP projects and the first PPP to be augmented while operational;
  • Queensland Treasury on all aspects of the restructure of Queensland Rail and $6.7 billion float of QR National, the third largest Australian IPO on record;
  • Seqwater, the owner and operator of the Wivenhoe and Somerset Dams in Queensland, in the Queensland Flood Commission where it assisted the Commission in understanding the key decisions taken during the major flood event in January 2011;
  • Queensland Investment Corporation on its A$7.1 billion sale of Queensland Motorways to a consortium;
  • the successful consortium on the Queensland Schools II PPP involving construction and maintenance of 10 primary and high schools conducted as a multi-site PPP across Queensland;
  • Aveo (formerly FKP) on the 30-level mixed use high rise at Milton, Brisbane. On completion, the development will comprise more than 300 apartments and a retail and commercial precinct;
  • Queensland Investment Corporation on a number of its significant fund transactions, including restructuring the QIC Investment Trust, establishing the QIC Sydney Premium Office Fund, and establishing a A$1.3 billion retail shopping centre fund and structuring an offering of an interest in that fund (A$600 million) to domestic and international wholesale investors; and
  • Glencore Coal on the development of the Rolleston Coal Mine and associated infrastructure in Queensland.
