We understand how the public sector works in New Zealand and can deliver tailored solutions for public entities that reflect your unique environment.
Our experience gives our clients confidence to make sound decisions and helps them to achieve effective outcomes whilst minimising legal, reputational and political risk.
We work across the public sector, from government departments and Crown entities through to local authorities and council-controlled organisations.
On a daily basis we work alongside our clients advising on public law, environment and planning, land acquisition and release, construction contracts, employment, intellectual property and commercial procurement of services such as technology and large scale office accommodation, applied in the context of the regulatory environment governing public entities.
Clients value our work on matters directly affecting the everyday lives of New Zealanders, such as in infrastructure development, Treaty of Waitangi and iwi relations and health and safety. We are also valued for our help on reputational risk and crisis management particularly in a dispute context and in the course of inquiries.
