ALLENS ARTHUR Robinson toppled its strongest rivals last week in winning the Chambers Australasian Firm of the Year Award.

The firm held out runners up Freehills and last year’s winner Mallesons Stephen Jaques to claim the title. Accepting the award in London, Allens’ success was a highlight in an already profitable year in terms of accolades for the firm. The firm has also won the BRW St George Client Choice Awards for best large firm and best large legal firm and the Australian Legal Business International Deal of the Year Award, among others.

Judges of the award said Allens had again confirmed its reputation as “a trusted adviser in high-stakes matters”. ”Broadly experienced and globally knowledgeable, the firm advised on News Corporation’s re-incorporation in the United States, BHP Billiton’s $2.3 billion off-market share buy back and Sony Music’s merger with BMG. It was also the premier project finance adviser in the Asia-Pacific region.”

Managing partner Tom Poulton said the Chambers win and their beating over 500 professional services firms in theBRW St George Client Choice Awards were an acknowledgment of Allens’ commitment to its clients.
