ACC is seeking to appoint a nationwide panel of legal professionals (Partners and employees of law firms, sole practitioners, Barristers sole, and Queen’s Counsel) with general litigation experience and specific expertise in Accident Compensation (AC), Medico-Health Law and litigation, to represent ACC at reviews and appeals under Part 5 of the Accident Compensation Act 2001.
ACC is looking for legal professionals who have the capability and experience to represent ACC on all appeals, as well as some reviews where legal representation is considered necessary due to the nature or complexity of the issues involved.
It’s important to us that the way we conduct litigation is consistent with our values. In a litigation context, the most relevant of these values are fairness, transparency and an approach that puts people before process. We expect our external legal representatives to demonstrate those values when they represent us.
We want a diverse panel of external legal representatives that reflects the diversity in the communities we serve and we have adopted the Law Society’s Gender Equitable Engagement and Instruction Policy.
These services have previously been provided by several legal professionals, mainly based in the city centres. Going forward we wish to formalise our coverage in the main centres, as well as expand these services to the regions.
Respondents to this ROI must meet the pre-conditions listed in Section 3.
