Our Experience

We are particularly skilled at helping our clients both prevent and survive administrative review.

Our advice is not only technically excellent, it is practical and strategic and covers reviews initiated by courts and tribunals, the Ombudsman, Senate Estimates and Royal Commissions.

We understand problems from your point of view, as many of our Advisors have worked in the public and private sectors.

We boast academic credibility, experienced in-house counsel and even former secretaries and chief executive officers. Our team has seen it all.

Skills and expertise

  • We can handle every aspect of internal and external review, from  tribunal documents (T-docs) to the High Court of Australia
  • We support you to make the right decisions, in the right way, and manage performance and conduct issues before they turn ugly
  • We will build your organisation’s capacity to avoid disputes through tailored, expert and accessible training
  • We’ll give you strategic legal advice, help you with processes, prepare for a Royal Commission, give evidence to a court or parliamentary committee, and build your organisational capacity to prepare and respond
  • We’re among the best at information law, from on-site talent to managing a case load, to troubleshooting sensitive information requests and managing difficult applicants
  • We’re very good with persistent, challenging and unrepresented complainants
  • We’re experts at managing external reporting obligations.
