Allens is an international law firm with offices throughout Australia and Asia. Through an integrated alliance with Linklaters, we offer clients access to an extensive network comprising 40 offices in 28 countries. Allens offers one of the most comprehensive legal networks in Australia and Asia.
We have been named Australian Law Firm of the Year in the Chambers Asia-Pacific Awards 2017 thanks to positive feedback from our clients. The award caps off a year of working with clients on some of Australia's largest and most complex deals.
Allens has one of the largest and most dynamic groups of banking specialists in the region, with dedicated lawyers advising banks and borrowers throughout the region and globally. We are one of the few firms to feature on every major legal panel in the Australian finance market and we advise some of the world's leading financial institutions, as well as regularly acting for a large number of corporate borrowers across a range of industries.
We are looking for an Associate/Senior Associate to join our Banking & Finance team in our Perth office. You will be working with Partners Ben Farnsworth and Nicholas Creed, who specialise in high-value, sophisticated banking and finance transactions, as well as complex legislative and industry issues. The Allens Banking & Finance team is billed a ‘class act’ across the banking and finance sector (Chambers Global).
Already the leading banking and finance firm in Australia, our presence in Asia continues to strengthen through our international alliance with Linklaters where we can service the banks, their clients and our own corporate clients, in multi-jurisdictional transactions and with multi-level funding arrangements.
