Local government and central government are key strategic focuses for DLA Phillips Fox. Our government and public law team has a vast depth of experience in almost every area of New Zealand government.
It is significant that DLA Phillips Fox was appointed to the “All of Government” panel to deliver advice to participating New Zealand government agencies in banking & finance; corporate & commercial; litigation; resource management; and property law. This central government procurement of legal services was highly competitive and involved bids from 125 law firms.
DLA Phillips Fox is one of only a very few law firms in New Zealand that is pre-eminent in legal work for a diverse range of local government entities, throughout the country. We have ten partners and their extensive legal staff widely involved in this sector.
The local government sector is dynamic and subject to regular legislative change. DLA Phillips Fox has been involved in the evolution of that law over decades, and we continue to guide clients through these changes.
