Top Lawyers to Workshop Solutions to Live Contracting Issues

In an innovative format, ACWA’s upcoming Legal Contracting Forum next Wednesday, May 17 at 2.30pm, will see the best lawyers in the sector put their minds to live legal issues for member agencies. A number of case studies will be put to Luke Geary (Salvos Legal) and Vera Visevic (Mills Oakley) reflecting the current state of play in contracting, addressing issues such as:

  1. Termination for convenience contract clause
  2. Dealing with Districts who approach the same contract differently
  3. Outcomes Based Funding issues
  4. Service of notice to request information under a Formal Access Application
  5. How to approach an often lopsided contract negotiation with a government department.

Have you got a legal contracting question that you’d like addressed?
Contribute to the discussion by sending your question through to and have it workshopped by the experts and audience at the forum.

Spaces are limited so please RSVP by May 15 to View the forum flyer for more information.
