We advise the public sector on its most significant commercial activities. Clients benefit from our commercial expertise, together with our deep-seated knowledge of how the public sector operates.
We have acted on major procurement and contracting projects for public sector entities in the transport, health, education, defence, housing, corrections and services sectors on both regulatory and contractual matters. When advising clients on procurement matters, we draw on our extensive experience to give boards and management of Crown agencies, and department officials, confidence as to the most practical and appropriate way to manage process and probity issues. Our procurement experience includes advising The Treasury on the model contract developed for public private partnerships (PPP) in New Zealand, and acting on the Crown side of all subsequent PPP projects.
