How we can assist governments
Our broad ranging experience allows us to provide up to date legal advice to governmental departments at very competitive rates.
We also have regular self assessment of files which increases the identification of any risks or issues prior to those risks or issues becoming problematic and decreases the risk of any issues impacting on files. As a result, we are also able to provide enhanced reporting on files for governmental departments if required for their external or internal reporting functions.
