Our people

Our lawyers share a deep commitment to ensuring Australia's public interest is protected and are keen to work with our government clients to support it.

Many of our lawyers have outstanding reputations in various aspects of Commonwealth law. Others have joined us after extensive experience in private practice, drawn by the unique aspects of law that government work provides. We also have a continuing intake of young lawyers committed to our goals and eager to develop their skills in the highly professional atmosphere of AGS.

All our people are required to adhere to the extremely high standards of conduct and integrity expected of lawyers acting for the government. Our ethical framework and our understanding and expertise in applying the model litigant policy provide clients with assurance that their matters will be handled in a way that will bear close scrutiny.

Our support staff can also offer vast government expertise and experience. Through them, we can offer our clients an extensive range of support services, ranging from information technology to complete litigation support.
