Government Relations

We understand how Government operates. Between them, our Government Relations specialists have more than 100 years of experience working at the heart of Western Australian politics.

Effective government relations is more than securing meetings with Ministers – it involves strategic planning, careful stakeholder identification and communication at all levels of government.

Our government relations team combines discipline with creativity to develop engagement strategies based on a thorough understanding of the political and bureaucratic environments in which our clients operate.

From high profile lobbying campaigns on issues as diverse as shopping hours deregulation and gold royalties, to more discrete engagement activities, we have built successful strategic campaigns from the ‘ground up’.

Members of our team have extensive experience working within Ministerial offices, government departments, in the private sector and at the community level. They have established relationships throughout all three levels of Australian government and are highly informed, abreast of current and pending issues and able to provide strategic, timely and contextual advice to clients.
