Allens is a leading international law firm with offices throughout Australia and Asia. With 200 years of commercial practice experience, we have a distinguished reputation. We work with many of the world's leading organisations, including more than 75 of Australia's top 100 companies. They benefit from our innovative approach to complex work, technical expertise, commercial acumen and integrity.

Our China team has considerable experience advising Chinese companies on their investments into Australia and the Asia region. We are experienced in assisting clients to successfully navigate their deals through the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) approval process and in working with Chinese clients.

We also have extensive experience advising Australian companies on their investments into China. Our team not only provides clients with an excellent proficiency in language and cultural skills, but, even more importantly, in Chinese business practice, intuitively understanding the needs and business drivers of Chinese corporations and institutions. A number of our team members have lived and worked in China and speak Mandarin.
