'The lawyers are always pleasant and approachable and responsive. Their government experience is difficult to match. I have used AGS on large projects and would always use them as first choice.' CLIENT SURVEY 2011

‘My experience working with AGS has been entirely positive, which is remarkable given the extent of that work over many years.’ – CLIENT REFERENCE 2012


AGS's migration practice comprises more than 60 lawyers from every major area of law within AGS. Our experts have had the conduct of many complex and significant migration matters.

AGS has successfully managed routine and large-volume litigation for the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) in each of our regional offices. We have worked with DIBP to respond and develop strategies to deal with the high level of migration litigation over recent years. AGS has also provided urgent assistance to DIBP in relation to high-profile and sensitive removals and other matters in which injunctive relief has been sought.

AGS has coordinated litigation in areas with wide-ranging implications for DIBP and has developed solutions to overcome judicial rulings which were contrary to the Department's policy objectives.
