About Allens

Allens is a leading international law firm with offices throughout Australia and Asia.

We have recently been named an elite "band one" firm in 20 practice areas and jurisdictions by Chambers Asia Pacific 2019. This achievement caps off a year of working with clients on some of Australia's largest and most complex deals.

The opportunity

The Disputes & Investigations Practice Group at Allens advises and acts in areas ranging from administrative law, defamation and Corporations Act matters, commercial and contractual disputes, competition cases, constitutional challenges, takeover disputes, tax disputes, regulatory inquiries and investigations, product liability matters, mediations, arbitrations and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

We have one of the leading Disputes & Investigations practices in the region and our team of over 200 lawyers appear in federal and state courts, specialist tribunals, arbitrations, mediations and in investigations by regulatory authorities.

Notably, the Disputes & Investigations Practice Group consistently ranks very highly, in Band 1, for its dispute resolution practice both in Chambers Asia Pacific and The Legal 500.

Due to significant growth within the practice and a healthy pipeline of work, we are looking for Associates to join our Perth team.

What you'll bring

To succeed in this role you will need:

  • Demonstrated experience (2+ years) in general commercial litigation.
  • Ideally your experience will be from a leading top tier, national or international firm.
  • An ability to effectively manage 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

At Allens, we’re focused on advancing our industry through equipping our people with the skills and experience they need to be the lawyers of the future. We’re ready to define tomorrow. Are you?

With us, you’ll be more than a lawyer. Our people are technical experts, but they’re also trusted business advisers who think bigger, more broadly and more strategically. Together, we solve complex legal challenges, and collaborate across practice areas and disciplines to guide our clients.

We work across borders too, thanks to our alliance with Linklaters. This strategic partnership opens up worlds of opportunity for our business and our people, including rotations in Linklaters London, Hong Kong and Singapore for our graduate lawyers.

In a rapidly changing world, we seek opportunities to innovate, embracing creative thinking, new approaches and emerging technology. And we don’t just use them to benefit ourselves and our clients. We believe strongly in driving positive change to do right by our community too.

Our teams are open, inclusive and encouraging, giving you the chance to learn and grow, but your development will be down to you. You’ll have the flexibility to drive your career, and we’ll recognise your achievements and hard work as you progress through the firm.

Are you ready to begin?
