Supporting national productivity
As one of Australia’s largest procurers and a major owner of infrastructure projects, government’s commercial projects create employment and boost productivity—and set industry standards in the process.
Our construction and infrastructure specialists regularly advise the Commonwealth—including Commonwealth departments and agencies—on major capital works projects. We understand the nuances and benefits of different construction delivery methods, so we can advise on the best way to structure contract models and how to approach the market.
We draft and develop water-tight tender and contract documents for complex digital and infrastructure projects as well as structuring and conducting RFT processes. We finalise processes through contract negotiations and educate the market through clear debriefing exercises. It's about making sure decisions are fair, transparent and fully defensible—and that the project delivers.
Our national property team advises the Commonwealth on its property portfolio. We get involved in property sales and purchases, and drafting and negotiating easements and restrictions on use as well as leases—from drafting, to licences and agreement, to disputes, to design construct and lease.
We work with the Commonwealth to secure its IP in complex transactions, and substantial ownership and rights issues. Our global view means we can assist with cross-border IP issues, too. And we also help statutory authorities deal with thorny software licence compliance and copyright issues.
