Provided by Allens

Allens has extensive experience in advising departments, agencies and statutory authorities at all levels of government in Australia. We are renowned for advising governments around Australia on some of the country's most complex reform, infrastructure development, divestment and privatisation projects. We are also entrusted to assist our government clients in relation to the day-to-day challenges they face.

Our extensive experience working with governments means that we know how government processes differ from private sector transactions and the special issues that face government sales and reforms. We are attuned to the roles played by various stakeholders, and experienced in balancing policy, market, legal, commercial, regulatory and logistical issues. We understand the importance of early, focused advice in setting the course for a transaction.

We also act for many private sector clients in doing business with government. This gives us a clear understanding of the priorities, practices and expectations of the private sector in their dealings with government entities.

Our clients appreciate the real value we can bring on the operational aspects of running effective departments and agencies given our in-depth understanding of and experience from the more complex matters in which we have traditionally been involved. From the simplest to the most complex, we apply our detailed understanding of government to advise our public sector clients on a diverse range of issues.
