Allens retains managing partner

Richard Spurio will continue to lead Allens after being reappointed as managing partner.

“The decision to reappoint Richard reflects our confidence in his leadership and the clear strategy he has developed for Allens. Richard has gone about his role engaging with our clients and our people with great energy and skill,” Allens chair Fiona Crosbie said.

Spurio, who was praised by Crosbie for fighting for the firm’s goals, will start his new four-year term on 1 January.

“Richard has championed with enthusiasm the things that are important to us: our innovation agenda, our continued focus on a diverse and inclusive culture; our commitment to pro bono work and community programs – and of course keeping clients central to all that we do,” Crosbie said.

 “As the firm moves towards its 200th anniversary in 2022, our ongoing focus is ensuring we have the strategy in place to set us up for the next 200 years,” Spurio said. “Our aim is to continue being the firm clients trust with their most strategic challenges and opportunities, as well as providing an environment for our people that is inclusive and diverse and allows them to be the very best that they can be.”
