Hunt & Hunt has a long history of acting for Commonwealth, state and local government departments, agencies and statutory authorities throughout Australia. Our expertise in the government and public sector is best demonstrated by our appointment to legal services panels for the Commonwealth Government, NSW Government and Victorian Government. Additionally, we represent over 40 local municipalities throughout Australia.
Our experience and familiarity with government means we understand the specific needs of our government clients, that they operate in a unique environment and they are subject to a high level of scrutiny.
Over the years we have developed an understanding of the interconnected nature of agencies and how to navigate and work through the often complicated issues that can occur.
Our government clients draw on our extensive public sector experience. Our administration and public law team comprises highly respected practitioners, some of whom have previously held senior positions within government and the public sector, which gives our team a unique perspective and understanding of the context within which advice must be prepared, received and implemented.
Our administrative and public law experience includes:
We also assist private sector and private clients who are challenging administrative decisions, seeking access to documents under freedom of information laws or who require representation in the Coroners Courts, Royal Commissions, or before corruption watchdogs. We assist our clients whether they are being investigated by police or whilst under investigation by regulatory authorities, and we provide them with guidance and advice about their obligations to provide evidence and the strategy for a trial.
