We have been working closely with the local government sector for more than 100 years.  

We appreciate the challenges associated with decision-making in local government, including balancing the need to advocate for local issues and deliver on customer service expectations while ensuring decision-making is informed, transparent and reasonable.

We have experience in providing advice and advocacy for local government on planning and environment matters and broader governance and local laws matters.

Harwood Andrews’ planning and environment team also work closely with the firms other practice areas to provide a full legal service to local government, including property law, employment, intellectual property and general commercial matters.
