Government Law

Government law issues including administrative law and planning matters are effectively dealt with by SMR Legal government lawyers. Our lawyers combine their legal expertise with their extensive personal experience to provide clients with advice and insight second to none.

Planning issues are among the most likely to impact on SMR Legal clients and our lawyers guide their clients through what can be a complex process.

SMR Legal acts on behalf of indigenous applicants and government authorities regarding indigenous land use. Our government lawyers appeared in the landmark Yorta Yorta decision and more recently negotiated a high profile indigenous land use agreement.

The firm has a long history of providing advice in relation to issues arising from the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) and more recently the Traditional Owners Settlement Act 2010 (Vic) (TOS Act) and other associated Aboriginal heritage and Native Title issues.
