Government & Public Bodies

Practice Area

Government departments and public bodies have a critical influence on the economy. They are market participants in their own right, deliver essential services and help to shape, influence and regulate private sector businesses.

We are able to offer effective legal advice to government departments and statutory bodies as a result of our understanding of the relevant legal, regulatory and policy frameworks in which they operate. We are able to bring that understanding and our experience to bear when advising our private sector clients to help them to understand the legal and regulatory environment. Whether we are advising clients in the public or private sectors, our aim is to help our clients to deliver their objectives in an efficient manner while minimising legal and reputational risk. 

We work with both public and private sector clients in a range of areas, including the following:

  • advising on the legislative frameworks within which government departments and other statutory bodies operate
  • assisting with public sector projects such as privatisations, major infrastructure and procurement projects
  • advising borrowers and lenders in connection with project development and project finance   
  • drafting new legislation, regulations, rules and policies
  • providing advice in relation to legislation and policy issues
  • corporate governance
  • public-private partnership arrangements
  • understanding and navigating sector regulatory regimes
