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  

Our tax practice has consistently been ranked in the top band by Chambers and Partners for over a decade. Our tax lawyers are renowned for precise, commercially informed advice on all areas of direct and indirect taxation and have an outstanding reputation in dispute resolution, including litigation and audit management.

We currently have excellent opportunities in Sydney and Melbourne respectively for Tax Lawyers at Associate or recently promoted Senior Associate level.

Working closely with the partners, the successful candidate will be a key member of the team representing many of Australia's top companies undertaking tax advisory work, negotiations and litigation on behalf of our clients.   You will also have the opportunity for involvement in significant international tax issues including advising on general structuring of transactions and transfer pricing issues and disputes.

What you'll bring  

To succeed in this role you will need: 

  • Demonstrated experience as a tax lawyer at a well-regarded top tier or international law firm;
  • An excellent record of academic achievement;
  • An ability to effectively manage smaller matters and discrete elements of larger matters;
  • A willingness to build an understanding of clients and develop effective working relationships;
  • An ability to establish a professional profile and internal networks; and,
  • 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?
