COMMISSIONS, TRIBUNALS + INQUESTS

These types of investigations and hearings can have serious consequences on your career and might result in criminal charges being laid. It is essential to have an experienced team of criminal defence lawyers in your corner.

We provide advice and representation to persons who are being investigated by, or are required to appear before, various Commissions and Inquiries including ICAC and the Crime Commission.

We can also assist you with reviews of decisions by various government departments or organisations to the NSW or ACT Civil + Administrative Tribunal. Decision makers (such as the NSW Police, AFP or Office of the Children’s Guardian) often have broad powers. Reviewing and challenging a decision can be a complex process requiring careful strategic planning and preparation. 

Below are some of the types of reviews that we can help you with:

  • The revocation of your firearms licence
  • The making of a firearms or weapons prohibition order
  • Your reporting obligations under the Child Protection Register
  • The suspension or cancellation of your Working With Children Check (WWCC)
  • The suspension or cancellation of your security licence
  • The suspension or cancellation of your passenger transport licence code (for passenger transport services such as taxis or rideshare operations)

Coronial inquests following the death of a loved one can be a long and challenging process. If you have a sufficient interest in the subject matter of the coronial inquiry, you may be entitled to legal representation at the hearing. Whether looking for answers, the real responsibility for a death, or dealing with broader reputational issues, we will guide you through the process and give you a chance to be heard.
