Governments worldwide are striving to deliver effective services and build resilient infrastructure that promises sustainable, economically responsible outcomes.

Innovative and secure uses of technology will be key to public sector transformation, enabling access to services as well as building infrastructure across a range of areas such as transport, health and education. Governments are reviewing their broader roles as decision-makers, including as regulators on issues such as sustainability, access to critical goods, gathering and using data in decision-making, as well as new challenges such as cyber security.

We understand the challenges of evolving policies, competing demands and increasing pressure to deliver value and cost-effective solutions. We have deep experience advising across a wide range of areas including major procurements, infrastructure, privatisations, complex commercial, financial and regulatory matters, work health and safety, and insurance. We seek to optimise the public-private interface. Our integrated global team of public sector experts from across our global network provide a seamless service to share international expertise and lessons learned across jurisdictions to find solutions to fit local challenges.
