We are a group of people who give a damn. This means we will work tenaciously with clients because we believe that together we can make a difference.
We are all about relationships – we choose carefully who we want to work with, including our staff, partners and clients.
For our government clients that means we have worked in the public service, engaged with Ministers, written Cabinet papers, supported Bills through Parliament, and compiled Ministerial statements. We have used your report templates, put together budget bids and led strategic and planning processes, Statements of Intent, Briefings to Incoming Ministers, and engaged in Capability Reviews. We know how it works – and where it doesn’t, we know how to shift tack so that things just get done.
For businesses, we experience the same things you do. We need to meet regulatory expectations and have to manage our business to ensure business needs are met. However, we have a unique perspective given our strong public sector background and can help you put your position forward to government – in the language of government.
For non-government organisations (NGOs), we have worked alongside NGOs for decades – as government partners, as consultants helping NGOs meet their potential and secure necessary resources, and through our pro bono program.
Allen + Clarke is a provider on Australian government and state-level panels.
We believe strongly that businesses can partner with governments to lead important societal change. As part of our efforts to support that idea, we operate a pro bono work stream.
Every year we undertake projects for organisations in areas which align well with our company values. Our pro bono work has provided individuals and organisations with access to top quality, pragmatic policy and regulatory services on contemporary matters of public or community interest. We greatly value the experience gained from providing services to those who otherwise would not have access to this advice, but who have a genuine need for such services.
We invite expressions of interest in our pro-bono program at any time.
