Local Government Professionals Australia, NSW Announces Strategic Partnership with Leading Law Firm Hall & Wilcox


Local Government Professionals Australia, NSW are pleased to announce a new Corporate Partnership with Hall & Wilcox who will collaborate to provide an array of legal support for our members.

Acting for over 20% of Australia’s top companies, Hall & Wilcox holds significant experience in practicing in the local government sector, which ultimately influenced the decision by LG Professionals, NSW as their chosen legal provider. LG Professionals, NSW members will have the opportunity to participate in exclusive workshops, seminars and webinars hosted by Hall & Wilcox, covering a variety of subject matter including employment and industrial relations, administrative law, property law, commercial law, project and finance and dispute resolution. In addition to this, members will also be able to contact Hall & Wilcox for free legal advice (professional) via an exclusive direct helpdesk line established specifically for LG Professionals, NSW members. With the recent uncertainty and continuously changing external landscape of local government in New South Wales, it is important that our members are supported to make the right decisions in a legal capacity.

Hall & Wilcox partner, and planning and environment specialist, Stan Kondilios, commented that “Hall & Wilcox is delighted to support the local government sector through LG Professionals, NSW’s Corporate Partnership program, providing legal support to LG Professionals, NSW members.”

Mr Kondilios went on to say that Hall & Wilcox has substantial experience in providing legal services to government and this appointment is just another example of the strong relationships it builds within the sector. “I have taken great personal and professional satisfaction in providing advice to leaders in the local government sector for a number of years. I am thrilled that through the recent processes of reform in local government we are able to support all members of LG Professionals, NSW so they continue to make strong contributions in their communities”.

Annalisa Haskell, CEO, LG Professionals, NSW said, “We are excited to be building this partnership with Hall & Wilcox. Their commitment to strong collaboration, being progressive and achieving high performance are all traits we know our members and the sector will appreciate and trust. I am confident this relationship will prosper and offer local government and our members the quality services both of our organisations are proud to be recognised for.”
