We offer our clients access to leading lawyers and resources in Australia, Asia and around the world. Our clients recognise us for our commerciality, professionalism, integrity and technical expertise. We are praised for our innovative approach to complex work and delivering market-leading solutions to clients.

Allens has a long association with major Japanese companies with significant dealings in Australia and the Asia region. Over the past two decades, we have advised almost 500 Japanese clients. In addition, the firm represents many of the largest and best-known Australian corporations and multinationals dealing with Japanese counterparts.

Our specialist Japan Group provides clients with an excellent proficiency in the Japanese language but, even more importantly, in Japanese business practice, intuitively understanding the needs and business drivers of Japanese corporations and institutions.

We also help our clients navigate the legal and regulatory issues that foreign investors face when considering investment opportunities in Australia.
