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.

Allens was founded on 22 July 1822, the day after 21-year-old George Allen was admitted as an attorney and solicitor of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and became the first person to complete their full legal training in Australia. When he began his small legal practice in a cottage on Elizabeth Street in Sydney, he could not have forseen the story that would follow.

From playing a pioneering role in the development of legislation and regulatory frameworks, 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 41 offices in 26 countries through our global alliance with Linklaters.

We are privileged to hold some of the world's longest ongoing client relationships, stretching back more than 170 years. Now, just as it has always been, we're committed to bringing our talent, expertise and insights to continue solving their toughest problems and creating ways forward to help them thrive. New and exciting market entrants sit alongside these established companies in our client base, drawn to working with us through the innovative re-packaging of our services for the growing and fast paced startup market.

Our Values

Shaping the future is in our DNA - whether it's helping our clients see around corners and take advantage of new opportunities; fostering growth and opportunity so our people can thrive, make a difference and be their very best; or contributing to the development of sustainable, diverse, equitable and just communities where everyone is recognised and included.

Continuing to shape the future means committing to a truly purpose-led culture, built on values that reflect who we are, where we've come from and who we want to be.

Allens advises on sale of Honan Insurance Group to Marsh

Allens has advised TA Associates on the sale of Honan Insurance Group - a leading specialist insurance broker in the areas of corporate risk, employee benefits and strata and real estate insurance - to Marsh, the world's leading insurance broker and risk advisor and a business of Marsh McLennan.

"We are pleased to have worked with TA Associates on this sale to a global strategic buyer which demonstrates that good assets can still be traded, despite continuing caution around the M&A market,' said co-lead Partners Mark Malinas and Kounny Rattley."

"The financial services sector remains relatively insulated from some of the volatility we're seeing in the economy, with this deal being a good example of the healthy appetite for activity that exists in the sector. We wish the Honan management team and Marsh all the best with this acquisition."

Allens advised on all aspects of the transaction including TA Associates' original acquisition of Honan Insurance Group in 2020, working closely alongside the Honan management team including General Counsel, Belinda Muir.
