Overview

The Queenstown Lakes District is experiencing high growth, this puts significant demand on all areas of Council to effectively manage and deliver their services. The Council is seeking to increase its internal legal services capability and capacity; this has resulted in change to the scope and style of the external legal support required.

To that end, the Council is seeking to implement a refreshed Legal Services Panel for the provision of legal advice and support, within the broad context of the Local Government Act and the local government framework, in the following Disciplines:

- Environmental and RMA (including review of the District Plan)
- Infrastructure Delivery (commercial transactions on large scale construction projects and consenting)
- Public Policy
- Commercial
- Dispute Resolution and Litigation
- Property and Conveyancing

We are seeking to establish a legal panel that has the combined capacity and capability to deliver support in the specified Disciplines. We are also seeking to engage a single firm who will be responsible for meeting Council’s employment law requirements.

Refer to the attached RFP document for full details of this Request for Proposals.
