Our services

Government regulatory and licensing

Representing clients in application, compliance, enforcement and review matters arising from government legislation and regulation.

What we do

We provide advice and representation on application of legislation, regulation and policy, freedom of information, privacy, administrative appeals and judicial review of government decisions, defence of regulatory prosecutions, local government permits and approvals, school and education regulation, water and natural resource use and prosecutions.

Application and Compliance

Government regulation is becoming more complex, and action for non-compliance can be very costly. Our lawyers have in-depth knowledge of the political and regulatory environments in which government decisions are made, and the procedural formalities necessary to navigate this complex area of law successfully.  We assist our clients to understand legal obligations and employ effective strategies to comply with regulatory requirements, ensuring interactions with government agencies produce outcomes that support client objectives.

  • In-depth knowledge of political and regulatory environment
  • Producing outcomes that support client objectives

Challenging Decisions

Where a client is dissatisfied with a government decision, or subject to enforcement action, we employ our strategic litigation and dispute resolution skills to challenging that decision or action, whether it be by request for reconsideration by the original decision-maker, review of the decision ‘on the merits’ by a tribunal, or judicial review by a court. We have extensive experience representing clients to obtain the correct and preferable decision, or if the circumstances are such that this is not possible, mitigating financial and reputational liability to the client.
