Effective 1 July 2023, the new partner appointments will mean that 38 per cent of Allens’ partners will be women and covers a number of key practice areas, including corporate, banking and finance, disputes and investigations and projects.

The newest partners in Australia are Rod Aldus, Dominic Anderson, Tarsha Gavin, Emily Johnstone, Kirsty Prinsloo and Eugene Tan. Kenneth Imako also joins the partnership in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. 

The partners are a mix of promotions and new hires, said Allens chair Fiona Crosbie.


“It is wonderful to welcome this group who reflect the many and varied pathways to partnership at Allens,” she said.

“Some have been with the firm since early in their careers, while others have joined us recently from other firms, or returned to us after a stint elsewhere.”

With these new appointments, Allens remains on track to reach its partnership gender target of 40 per cent women, 40 per cent men and 20 per cent any gender in 2025.

Managing partner Richard Spurio welcomed the new leaders to the partnership.

“We are delighted to welcome these outstanding lawyers to the partnership,” he said.

“All of them bring expertise in areas of critical importance to our clients and are terrific mentors to younger lawyers across the firm.”
