Basic Info

Allens is a leading international law firm with a long and proud heritage of shaping the future for our clients, our people and the communities in which we work.

From playing a pioneering role in the development of legislation and regulatory frameworks in the Asia region for almost 200 years, to acting on numerous 'firsts' across a range of industry and community issues, it is in our DNA to make a difference and help shape what our world looks like.

Over this time, we've grown in scale and reach, today offering clients a global network of 40 offices in 28 locations through our global alliance with Linklaters. The alignment of our complementary practices enables us to offer an integrated service to our international clients, with one point of contact, a unified team drawn from the best resources of each firm, and consistent quality advice and support. We work closely as a team across different jurisdictions and practice areas to offer a truly integrated and comprehensive service.

We are privileged to hold some of the world's longest ongoing client relationships, stretching back more than 170 years, and we're committed to bringing our talent, expertise and insights to continue solving their toughest problems and creating ways forward to help them thrive. New and exciting market entrants sit alongside these established companies in our client base, drawn to working with us through the innovative re-packaging of our services for the growing and fast paced start-up market.

Continuing to shape the future means committing to a truly purpose-led culture, built on values that reflect who we are, where we've come from and who we want to be.
