How we can help

We have a particular focus on the Territory business community and have strong relationships and ties with a range of significant businesses as well as membership of appropriate organisations.

Although our Territory office is located in Darwin we have a strong visiting presence in Alice Springs and regularly visit other Territory communities.

As well as providing front end services, we have extensive experience in appearing in all relevant Territory courts, Tribunals and Commissions, and are available to take agency work where appropriate.
