Overview

Economic, demographic and social changes mean the business of government has never been more challenging. As people who used to work in government agencies, our national team is proud to support the important work of public servants as they shape the policies that change people’s lives. We understand government work—the time pressures, policy priorities and legislative constraints. It’s why we’re one of the three largest private legal services providers to the Commonwealth Government. We bring commercial, administrative law and dispute resolution expertise to help with complex, sensitive and high profile programs. Our advice provides policy makers with commercial and practical solutions for improving program management and policy outcomes.
