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. We were also awarded Law Firm of the Year (> 500 employees) at the Australasian Law Awards. This achievement caps off a year of working with clients on some of Australia's largest and most complex deals.
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 very healthy pipeline of work, we are now looking for additional Associates and Senior Associates to join our busy, growing Melbourne team.
