What we do
Local Government Legal acts for local government and other entities and our close day to day involvement with our clients means we are well placed to give the highest quality and most comprehensive legal services in the areas of law that local councils operate within.
As well as appearing in all Commonwealth and New South Wales Courts, we advise on legislation, policy and strategic issues in the areas of local government, planning, environmental, administrative, and property, building & construction, commercial and contract law matters.
Our dedicated team of Solicitors have a wealth of knowledge and expertise from working with local government clients and other entities across New South Wales. As such, we have a unique understanding of both the processes within local councils and also the complexities involved in the competing interests local councils often face. We understand our client’s requirements and timeframes and we can be relied upon to provide the highest quality advice that is not only strategic but is also practical.
At Local Government Legal we believe that a strong emphasis should be placed on trying to initially resolve conflicts by negotiation rather than litigation. We are however experienced litigators and able to assist our clients to use the law and court processes to reach solutions that meet our client’s objectives in a cost-effective manner.
We have acted for over 40 local council and other entities throughout New South Wales to date.
