About Allens

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 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 now looking for Associates and Senior Associates to join our busy Melbourne team.
