Linklaters’ Australian ally Allens has shrunk its partnership by more than a quarter in the five years since forging an alliance with the UK firm in 2012, it has emerged.

The Australian firm had 180 partners and an office network across Asia when it went into its exclusive alliance deal with Linklaters in 2012. Five years later, its partnership has shrunk by 27% to 131 partners, while the firm also has shut down most of its Asia network to instead rely on the magic circle firm’s offering in the region.

The firm has closed offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Cambodia, as well as terminating an alliance in Thailand.
