Through our appointments to Government panels (icare’s Legal Services Panel for General Lines claims, The NSW Government Legal Services Panel, The NSW Trustee & Guardian Legal Services Panel and The Whole of Australian Government Legal Services Panel), we regularly assist NSW state government departments and agencies and Australian Government agencies.
Our lawyers are frequently called upon to provide advice and representation in disputes, investigations, and inquiries, involving routine as well as more complex and sensitive matters. We are at all times aware of the various government policies and guidelines which are apply to government departments involved in litigation, such as the model litigant and equitable briefing policies. Through our full-service offering, we provide advice and assistance in the areas of administrative review, prosecutions (criminal and civil), discrimination and privacy.
Because of Makinon d’Apice’s experience and knowledge of government, we are often called upon to assist on the development of government policy. We also advise on the best way to implement policy decisions and how best to interpret new legislation.
