Public Law

The scope of public law is not widely understood. Public law is the law that governs government. It influences everything that governments do. If it would help you to know what a government agency is doing, or should do, if you want to affect what or how they are doing it – we can help you. Wherever central or local government policy, law reform, or regulation applies, public law knowledge may be the key to better results for the people and businesses affected.

Our clients will include businesses, Crown and statutory entities, SOEs, and voluntary or charitable organisations. Public law includes Administrative law, Constitutional law, and Legislation. The principals of Franks Ogilvie have between them 60 years of experience in these areas. We know New Zealand constitutional law. We are familiar with both the formal and the informal rules of government decision-making. We maintain connections with the government of the day and with MPs from across the political spectrum.

Give the team a call

We’re likely to know who makes the decisions, why, and how politics or the law can compel you or trip you up.
If it takes less than 20 minutes we rarely charge.
There are not many specialist public lawyers. Even fewer have commercial experience. We start and end with commercial interests at heart.
