MinterEllison represents over 200 different government departments, agencies and statutory authorities at federal, state/territory, and local government levels, throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific.

We have a deep understanding of the political environment in which our government clients plan, implement policy, manage and deliver services. Our government experience of over 40 years allows us to partner with our various government clients to advise on particularly complex and sensitive matters.

We are members of many of the jurisdiction's legal panels, with the members of our teams chosen for their ongoing professional legal relationships with key stakeholders and their in-depth understanding of public sector issues and processes. Our substantial experience includes advising on major multi-million dollar projects that require cross-agency implementation through to assisting clients with their day-to-day procurement, employment and administrative law challenges, complex dispute resolution and whole-of-government initiatives – across all tiers of government.
