This achievement caps off a year of working with clients on some of Australia's largest and most complex deals. 

The opportunity

Following a successful year for our Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) practice nationally, we are now seeking to employ a talented Associate to join our growing Sydney team.  We have just appointed a new partner to our team and are very much in growth mode. 

Our lawyers work across the full suite of legal practice areas dedicated to servicing the TMT sector. The role offers an opportunity to work in a collaborative environment with partners and senior lawyers who are top of their game offering advice to clients that is commercially relevant to their business.

Our TMT practice offers unrivalled depth of experience across the full spectrum: technology, outsourcing, telecommunications, media and broadcasting, data services, privacy and cyber-risk.

We serve a wide range of clients across multiple sectors: banks, telecoms and media companies, major corporates and government bodies. We also advise a range of start-ups and major corporates investing into the start-up sector through our Allens Accelerate practice.

  • Demonstrated experience from a leading information technology practice, ideally with direct involvement in the negotiation of IT / telecommunication contracts.
  • An ability to manage matters independently and to work effectively in teams on larger matters.
  • A desire and ability to grow, both as a lawyer and leader.
  • A willingness to build an understanding of clients and develop effective working relationships.
  • An ability to establish a professional profile and internal networks.
  • A willingness to develop others through mentoring and sharing experiences and networks.

What we'll offer

If you have the ambition, talent and desire to progress through our firm, you can – as soon as you're ready.

At Allens, we provide lifelong learning that develops you personally and professionally, and access to people and partners who can help you become the best you can be.
