Dispute resolution and litigation (1)

What is the AGS difference? No other firm can offer an unconflicted, whole-of-government approach to managing your litigation and achieving outcomes which accord with government sensitivities and drivers.

AGS is the Australian Government’s specialist in resolving and managing disputes. We understand that all disputes are unique, and will always offer a bespoke approach to achieving the best strategic outcomes.

We are never conflicted against government – we only act for government. This means we will always provide you with rigorous, objective analysis at the beginning of your matter that is culturally aligned with the drivers of government.

A truly national government practice, we have experts on the ground in every jurisdiction to ensure we can assemble the right team wherever you need us to be. Our experienced litigation lawyers have appeared in every court and tribunal in Australia, and the Fair Work Commission. Many of our practitioners have been embedded in government departments to better collaborate with key stakeholders over the course of critical litigation matters.

With extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution, we have achieved efficient, cost-effective and lasting settlements without the organisational disruption often associated with full-scale litigation.

Our whole-of-government understanding means we have deep relationships across all departments and security agencies. We know who to call, and when to call them to achieve the outcomes you need.

Our litigation technical support services unit has the skills to identify key source documents and implement sophisticated discovery analytics. Our innate knowledge of government means we ask the right questions to get the right documents from the right sources.

We have unique experience in identifying and managing public interest immunity claims and extensive protocols to best manage highly sensitive and confidential material.

Having played a leading role in major Commonwealth class actions and Royal Commissions, we have also acted for the Commonwealth in torts and defamation law, criminal law, commercial disputes, tax and debt litigation, migration law, competition and consumer law, summonses and subpoenas, and family law.

Whatever the nature of your dispute, we have experienced practitioners who will have direct and relevant contextual experience.
