This is Allens

Being out at work, allyship and contributing to LGBTQ+ equality through pro bono work: our people share their experiences of inclusion and support at Allens this Pride Month.

Alexander Batsis

Despite my challenges (which many members of the LGBTQ+ community still face), I came out stronger and more determined than ever to live as my true self. This is what pride means to me: living life truthfully and with freedom.

Kate Sinclair

As an outspoken Aboriginal and lesbian, I wasn't sure that I would find my people at Allens. But all my ideas about the firm were flipped when I joined.

Andrew Wilcock

This case was the highlight of my career to that point. Such a strong and unequivocal statement from the country's highest court represented an important brick in the road towards expunging discrimination against intersex and gender diverse people from Australian law.

Anna Brown

There is still work to do – difficult and complex work, which lawyers are in a unique position to advance. The high-quality legal assistance that Allens provides to organisations like Equality Australia is crucial to continuing it.

Igor Bogdanich

There's nothing about more acceptance, inclusion and support that isn’t better than having less of these things. As a partner of a firm that is committed to being 'in it together', I like knowing that I can play a role as an ally in fostering true inclusion.
