Local Government Legal
Local Government Legal is an incorporated legal practice wholly owned by our commercial entity, which acts for local government councils and related entities across NSW.
Local Government Legal is uniquely placed by both ownership and experience to provide our clients with the most comprehensive, timely and cost-effective legal advice in the main areas of law that councils operate within.
As well as acting for local councils in various court jurisdictions, we advise on legislation, policy and strategic issues in the areas of local government, planning, environmental, administrative and property matters.
Our dedicated team of Solicitors have a wealth of knowledge and expertise from working with local government clients across NSW. As such, we have a unique understanding of both the processes within councils and also the complexities involved in the competing interests councils often face. We understand our clients requirements and timeframes and we can be relied upon to provide 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 conflict 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 council’s objectives in a cost-effective manner.
