‘They don’t just answer the questions I ask, they probe a bit further and work out how they might give an answer that will assist us in the longer term as well as the shorter term.’

‘Because AGS primarily provide legal services to the Commonwealth conflicts of interest are far less likely to arise for AGS than for private sector legal firms.’ FaHCSIA 2012

‘I have also used the AGS in commercial transactions, and … have found the AGS lawyers to be commercially minded, knowledgeable about business imperatives and practical in their advice.’ CLIENT REFERENCE 2012

'They are subject matter experts on commercial and matters relating to procurement in Australian Government organisations.' CLIENT SURVEY 2012

Corporate and commercial law

AGS assists government agencies with the full range of corporate and commercial legal matters.

Many of our more than 70 lawyers in AGS Commercial bring a special perspective to their work gained from many years’ experience in both public and private sector commercial matters.

They are expert in advising on areas such as taxation, information and communication technology projects, grants and funding, consumer and competition, intellectual property, media and communications, environment and resources, State and intergovernmental agreements, infrastructure, construction, property and leasing, insurance, banking and finance, procurement, tendering and contracting probity, process and risk management.

AGS Commercial works closely with the Office of General Counsel and AGS Dispute Resolution when clients’ projects or matters also involve administrative or dispute-related issues.
