Allens

Allens Linklaters is a Founding Member of the Global Compact Network Australia.

Allens is an international law firm with offices throughout Australia and Asia. On 1 May 2012, Allens formed an integrated alliance with Linklaters. This has resulted in the two firms working together closely for the benefit of clients around the world.

What makes this law firm different from competitors? It’s technical excellence combined with commercial insight. It’s the ability to take the most complex questions and provide the clearest answers.

Allens lawyers unashamedly love the law. But they understand clients don’t want pages on what legislation says. They want succinct answers that achieve their commercial aims. To achieve this, we use our intellectual creativity to distil complexity and provide clear-cut solutions.

Our focus on excellence and our clients has led to many accolades – for example:
