The First 200 Years

As the oldest law firm in Australia, in 2022 Allens celebrated 200 years since twenty-one-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. Told in a series of stories and landmark cases the firm has been involved with, the Allens book was painstakingly designed and illustrated, and exquisitely presented.

A collection of stories covering 200 years of law in Australia, which we proudly edited, illustrated and designed for this project.


The feedback has been fantastic. One of our partners sat up till 3am on Saturday reading the book and then went straight back to it as soon as he woke up again.
