Allens Accelerate


Allens Accelerate is a legal practice dedicated to supporting the Australian startup community and providing expert legal advice to corporates and government agencies responding to disruption and investing in innovation

What is Allens Accelerate?

Allens Accelerate is the startup and high-growth companies practice within Allens. Leveraging Allens’ firm-wide expertise, Allens Accelerate works with startups, investors, corporates and government agencies across the spectrum of innovation. We follow startups from beginning to launch and beyond, providing relevant and affordable guidance that will allow them to take their ideas to the next level.

We work with investors to direct investment into promising startups. Our services cover the lifetime of the investment from the establishment of vehicles, investment of funds and following the investment through to exit.

We also help corporates and governments respond to disruption and get ‘startup ready’, including by assisting them to invest in, and partner with, startups and emerging high-growth companies.

Services and pricing

We understand that the needs of startups are different to those of major corporates and we tailor our offering to match the scale, complexity, speed and pricing constraints of startups and their investors.

'Being backed by a crack team over there has given us confidence and peace of mind that we can get on with doing what we do best and the fixed fee structure has meant we can afford to have a legal setup that we otherwise couldn't - so thank you again to you all and the Allens Accelerate program.'
