Allens announces 15 partners and 12 managing associates

Allens has announced the appointment of 15 new partners and 12 managing associates, effective 1 July 2020.

The appointments are spread across 12 of the firm’s practice streams, reflecting a wide range of work with our clients.

‘I am delighted to congratulate our new partners and managing associates. They are an outstanding group of people who have been and will continue to be trusted advisers to our clients,’ said Managing Partner Richard Spurio.

‘We are pleased to be able to continue to provide opportunities for our people, both at partner level and through our emerging leaders at managing associate level.

‘Our new partners bring a range of different backgrounds and perspectives to the firm, though this year’s gender balance is below where we’d like it to be. Since financial year 2018, just under 50 per cent of our new partners have been female and we remain on track and committed to meet our aspiration, set in 2017, to have at least 35 per cent female partners by 2022.’

The new partners include Kounny Rattley, who joins us from having been a partner at Clayton Utz. Kounny is one of several new partners who are part of the firm’s expanded private equity practice.
