"Gilbert + Tobin is a long-time market leader." The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2012

Gilbert + Tobin has worked with Government for many years on a variety of public sector projects. We understand that Government is subject to a unique set of challenges in terms of the increasing speed of legislative change, the need for greater openness and responsiveness and the desire for Government departments, agencies and subsidiaries to utilise best practice from the corporate world in the way they work.

We work collaboratively with government agencies globally in areas of sensitivity where engagement, stakeholder management and communication are essential to getting the job done.

Our approach

We have a blend of government, regulatory and commercial experience in Australia and overseas and have proven ability to work with a significant range of government entities on a variety of significant projects. Our ability to work with a number of parties has been enhanced by senior members of our team having previously held senior positions with government and the regulators. This has given us invaluable insights from the client perspective.

Our methodological approach to addressing our clients’ needs has been proven to work effectively across corporate and government clients alike. As demand for high quality service delivery increases, the cross-pollination of issues and solutions between our corporate and government clients is beneficial for both parties.

Our strong background gained on state, national, international and private projects means that we can work as part of a multi disciplinary team with any client to achieve their policy objectives.
