Our national specialist team structure and extensive public sector experience means we have visibility of the full range of risk management, regulatory and legal issues confronting State and Territory Governments.

We act for State and Territory Governments, statutory authorities, agencies, government business enterprises, regulators and other instrumentalities throughout Australia.

Over the years, we’ve been appointed to the legal services panels of many State Government clients. Today, we continue our commitment to working with State Government, from the efficient disposal of routine matters through to effective crisis management in dynamic, emerging situations.


Lawyers in our State Government teams have experience across:

  • Government and administrative law
  • All classes of insurance law
  • Personal injury and liability law
  • Employment law, including workplace health and safety matters
  • Litigation, including dispute resolution and model litigant obligations
  • Planning and environment
  • Property and development
  • Commercial law
  • Construction law
  • Coronial inquiries.
We focus on providing government clients with worthwhile commercial outcomes and value for money, while supporting them to:
  • Satisfy changing statutory and regulatory requirements
  • Deal fairly with stakeholders and interest groups
  • Carefully manage risk
  • Avoid conflicts of interest.


We’re committed to providing the public sector with a legal service that aligns with the Government’s ethical and cultural environment.

We understand how to defend, secure and promote state interests when applying our legal expertise to government matters. We always aim to proactively position government to minimise the impact of emerging risks.

Our ability to scale delivery capability to serve government means our government clients can be confident we have the leadership, infrastructure and resources to roll out a consistent approach and perform dependably across the state or territory.
