government decision making, information access & accountability.
Administrative law focused on the powers, structure and decision making of public sector entities like your local council, the state government and government owned organisations. Our lawyers have substantial experience within senior levels of the public and private sectors, providing us with the unique capability to understand the inner workings of government and to hold government organisations accountable for their investigative practices, decision making that impacts you.
If you have received a notice from a government department or local council authority that you believe is unfair or inaccurate, we advocate for you and engage directly with the regulator or department to seek rapid review actions and to achieve a fair and just outcome for you.
As part of that process, we also routinely assist clients with obtaining information through Right to Information, Freedom of Information and Administrative Release mechanisms and have extensive expertise in raising and resolving complaints with the Office of the Information Commissioner.
