AGS is a group within the Australian Government Attorney-General’s Department providing legal services to government, a role that we have fulfilled since Federation and our sole reason for existing.
They assist the Attorney-General in the role of First Law Officer and they advise the Executive Government and all Commonwealth agencies.
Their long experience in working with government agencies means they understand the Government's legislative and regulatory frameworks, policy objectives and key programs.
They work with client agencies to deliver outcomes and minimise legal risk by providing high-quality advice and representation and timely, reliable service. They have the expertise, the corporate memory and the resources to do this in a way no other legal practice can.
As a legal practice owned by the Commonwealth, AGS is dedicated to the interests of their clients individually and the interests of government as a whole. They work in collaboration with your in-house legal teams, providing value-for-money legal services supporting a 'whole-of-government' perspective.
AGS is one of Australia's largest national legal services providers, with offices in every capital city and approximately 320 lawyers who cover some 40 different areas of law related to government.
