Government Litigation

Maddocks is highly experienced in successfully representing all tiers of government in the full range of courts and tribunals.

Our firm’s focus on servicing the needs of public sector clients ensures we are aware of the particular ethical and financial obligations placed on government in resolving disputes. We understand the pressures experienced by those who instruct on behalf of government and the different reporting needs of government in relation to disputes. We often assist in preparing ministerial briefs and answers to questions on notice concerning our client’s dispute.

Our team is experienced in working on highly confidential matters and issues which are the subject of intense public interest and political scrutiny.  We know that legal work undertaken by government will often involve matters which are highly sensitive, and we are particularly mindful of the need to exercise discretion and judgement and to maintain the strictest confidence.

Our goal is to assist government to resolve its disputes in the public interest, both in terms of outcome and cost. We take time to understand the context of disputes and bring a strategic mindset to their resolution. Our extensive experience in all forms of alternative dispute resolution is critical in this context.

We fully understand the requirement to comply with state and federal guidelines such as the Commonwealth’s Legal Services Directions, including the need to act as a model litigant.

How can we help?

Our dedicated, highly specialised legal teams have the experience and depth of resources to manage the most complex dispute resolution through to finalisation, whether that be by negotiated settlement or hard-fought litigation.
