Administrative Law

Administrative law regulates the way governments make and implement decisions. We understand the unique needs of departments, agencies and office-bearers at all levels of government, while also bringing the best disciplines of commercial practice to the table.

Our Administrative Law Expertise

Governments exist to serve their communities. Maddocks has played a key role in supporting departments, statutory authorities, ministers and agencies to achieve their goals and mandates within their political contexts for well over a century.

Our lawyers serve government clients with high-level strategic legal advice, as well as transactional and regular operational requirements.

We regularly advise on administrative and public law issues that are specific to government, including governance, statutory interpretation, advice on risk management and the exercise of powers and functions.

We also provide advice on legislative reform, freedom of information, privacy and dispute resolution (including public law litigation).
