Allens is a leading international law firm with a long and proud heritage of shaping the future for our clients, our people and the communities in which we work.
From playing a pioneering role in the development of legislation and regulatory frameworks in the Asia region for almost 200 years, to acting on numerous 'firsts' across a range of industry and community issues, it is in our DNA to make a difference and help shape what our world looks like.
Over this time, we've grown in scale and reach, today offering clients a global network of 40 offices in 28 locations through our global alliance with Linklaters.
Our Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) and Capital Markets Team has advised on many of Australia's largest M&A transactions in recent years, demonstrating our team's strength as one of the leading corporate practices in Australia. We are pleased to have played a crucial role in the largest and most complex deals in Australia's corporate history. With an emphasis on quality, innovation and timeliness, we deliver highly successful outcomes in M&A for leading companies and financial sponsors in Australia and around the world.
Following a very busy and successful year for our M&A and Capital Markets practice nationally, we are now seeking to employ an Associate to join our growing Melbourne team.
Working alongside a number of Partners in the practice, you will be involved in public and private M&A and corporate advisory work. You will have the opportunity to work on capital raisings and for private equity clients and gain exposure across a broad range of sectors including mining, infrastructure, energy, financial services, health, media, technology and retail.
What you'll bring
To succeed in this role you will need:
- At least two years' experience from a Corporate M&A practice ideally at a peer top tier Australian practice or international firm;
- To have been admitted to practise no later than 2017;
- An ability to effectively manage smaller matters and discrete elements of 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; and
- A willingness to develop others through mentoring and sharing experiences and networks.
What we'll offer
At Allens, we are focused on advancing our industry through equipping our people with the skills and experience they need to be the lawyers of the future. We are ready to define tomorrow. Are you?
With us, you will 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 will have the flexibility to drive your career, and we will recognise your achievements and hard work as you progress through the firm. Are you ready to begin?
