Public Sector Law

Interacting with government and the public sector can be a complex and time-consuming process. Navigating through the large array of national and local legislation takes time and energy, and it can add pressure to your business transactions.

At Gallaway Cook Allan we have a long history of experience working with the public sector – both nationally and regionally – and can help your business cut through any red tape so you can ensure timely outcomes.

Our Otago-based public sector law team can provide assistance on a range of public law services including resource management, regional authority legislation and general development planning.

We have advised clients across the spectrum from homeowners to large businesses. We can help you with your obligations in relation to local bylaws or national government policy, and can initiate judicial reviews in cases where you have been unfairly treated.

We can work with you to ensure any applications and documents are well prepared and meet all of the legal requirements asked of them before you submit them to public sector agencies. By getting this right the first time we can help ensure you have the best possible chance of success in your transaction.
