Allens is an international law firm with offices throughout Australia and Asia. We work with many of the world’s leading organisations – including 55 of the world’s top 100 companies and more than 75 of Australia’s top 100 companies. Allens has an alliance with leading global law firm Linklaters, offering our people global career opportunities.


There isn’t an ‘Allens type’ – the more you enjoy working with a variety of people, the greater your success. Diverse perspectives help solve complex problems. Teams are stronger, client relationships are richer and the firm is more interesting. We look for initiative, excellence, commerciality, resilience, intelligence and curiosity when recruiting lawyers and corporate services staff.


We have offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Port Moresby and Singapore, and through our integrated alliance with Linklaters, our network includes 40 offices across 29 countries.

Allens is committed to providing an inclusive workplace and our LGBTI network, ALLin, aims to assist this effort where diversity, including identifying as LGBTI, is celebrated. ALLin is for all employees who identify as LGBTI as well as their supporters, associates, parents and friends, and provides opportunities for members to build relationships with each other, our clients and the wider community through events, network meetings and pro bono legal assistance on matters of interest to the LGBTI community.

Allens has publicly declared its support for gay marriage. We were the first law firm to be a member of Pride in Diversity, Australia’s first and only not-for-profit workplace program designed to assist Australian employers with the inclusion of LGBTI employees, and we are proud to have been recognised as a top 10 employer for LGBTI inclusion in the 2016 Australian Workplace Equality Index.

Many Allens employees have dedicated their time to a range of LGBTI causes in recent years, from assisting not-for-profits in major court cases on marriage equality and gender identity documentation, assisting LGBTI asylum seekers with their claims and supporting both local and international not-for-profits in their advocacy on transgender rights and expunging historical homosexual criminal convictions.

Michael Popkin Senior Associate

Allens has always been an extremely supportive workplace for LGBTI staff. There are gay and lesbian professionals throughout the firm and within the partnership and a broad range of straight allies. I recommend Allens to any young lawyer looking to work in an environment that has a strong commitment to diversity.
