Our Experience

Our government focus means we are fully across the technical and practical challenges our clients face when it comes to delegations and authorisations.

We are highly regarded for our innovative approach to providing services and understand the:

  • Administrative complexity involved in both tracking and maintaining delegations, and developing ‘workarounds’ to ensure decisions are made by those holding valid delegations
  • Governance issues surrounding the business need for certain employees to exercise statutory powers when they may not have an existing legal basis to do so, and how these arrangements respond to accountability measures
  • Technical legal issues of ensuring that delegations and authorisations are current, technically correct, comprehensive, consistent, and validly held.

Skills and expertise

At Proximity we have a proven track record in providing practical and effective solutions.

We approach the delegations and authorisations holistically, offer solutions, and draw on our experience and expertise in governance and management, as well as our technical legal expertise.

Our Advisors are highly experienced and technically excellent, while also being strategic and practical in their approach.

Most of our delegations Advisors are legally trained and have a deep understanding of government laws, policies and processes.
