The public law team at MinterEllisonRuddWatts assist public sector clients on how to best exercise their statutory powers, as well as with the drafting and interpretation of legislation. Members of the team have held roles within government and public sector organisations so understand the sector well. On the private sector side, the team assists clients in engaging with government (including regulators), in seeking to influence policy and legislative reform, and in complying with their legal obligations.
The team holds a broad network at all levels of New Zealand Government – either working within the firm or as board members of commissions, crown companies, state-owned enterprises and ministerial advisory committees. Several lawyers have held senior roles in key government departments.
