*Despite COVID-19, the Compliance and Enforcement Group is continuing to commence and conduct prosecutions, subject to the availability and further direction of the Magistrates Court. Due to the uncertainty of future court listings and the availability and resources of local governments, we are also assisting local governments in pursuing alternative compliance options and other urgent troubleshooting for areas of enforcement including but not limited to:

  • Health, asbestos, noise, food, unfit buildings
  • Dangerous buildings and unapproved works
  • Unapproved development and s214 directions
  • Dangerous dogs, seizure and destruction, registration cancellation

For all other COVID-19-related legal issues, please contact any of our partners or our Reception on 9383 3133. The firm remains fully-operational. Whilst a majority of our people are working from home, our ability to service our clients’ needs is unimpeded, and we look forward to supporting our clients through these challenging times.
