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 18 practice areas and jurisdictions by Chambers Asia Pacific 2020. We were also awarded Law Firm of the Year (> 500 employees) at the Australasian Law Awards, 2019. This achievement caps off a year of working with clients on some of Australia's largest and most complex deals.

The Opportunity

We are seeking lawyers (both senior and junior) with experience in anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF), as well as other areas of financial services regulation. If you have AML/CTF experience, this is an exciting opportunity to work on cutting edge matters as part of our growing and market-leading AML/CTF and broader financial services regulatory practice.

  • An understanding of the Australian AML/CTF regime.
  • An understanding of other areas of financial services regulation, including banking regulation, payment systems, superannuation or funds management would be highly regarded, but is not essential.
  • Strong analytical skills would be highly regarded.
  • 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.
  • A willingness to develop others through mentoring and sharing experiences and networks.

What we'll offer

  • You will be an integral part of a high performing, cross-practice team.
  • At Allens, we provide lifelong learning that develops you personally and professionally, and access to people and leaders who can help you become the best you can be.
  • You'll be given ongoing opportunities to get involved and to take your career all the way.
  • You'll enjoy a range of other benefits including free gym membership, staff discounts with hundreds of suppliers and regular social and sporting activities. Allens also leads the profession in community investment, giving you the opportunity to make a difference through our work on reconciliation, the environment and other social justice issues as well as our workplace giving and volunteering programs.
