We have expertise in acting on behalf of government departments, agencies, and statutory authorities in personal injury claims, employment, safety, privacy, technology, and professional regulation matters, as well as property and procurement contracts.
We understand what is essential to clients in the government sector. Our clients' needs are our priority. By listening to our clients we develop collaborative, tailored solutions to legal matters that adhere to public sector guidelines and legislation. We effectively balance public sector demands with pragmatic, commercial outcomes. For our government clients, this means you can trust our team with highly sensitive and technical matters requiring deep skill and commitment to delivering work within budget.
Our government team understands the specific requirements of government clients, including the importance of equitable briefing policies, procedural fairness, tight security protocols, confidentiality, transparency and accountability. A number of our senior lawyers have worked in the government sector adding further depth to our team's understanding of the role of policy in decision making, further enhancing our already practice style of advice.
