Governments and international organisations

In a globalised world, international law impacts on virtually every aspect of government.

Lexbridge is trusted by governments and international organisations to advance their international legal interests and shape the agenda in the international system.

Governments and international organisations, including the United Nations, World Bank, and the International Committee of the Red Cross turn to us because we are trusted, retain exceptional international law expertise, understand policy and political contexts, and know how to navigate the international system to deliver outcomes.

Australian Government

Australian government legal areas are under ever-increasing pressure to enable the core operations of their agencies, while delivering new projects and policy initiatives.

Lexbridge works with a large number of Australian government agencies, including the Departments of Defence and Foreign Affairs and Trade to provide essential support, both as part of in-house teams through secondments, and as external advisers.

Agencies partner with us because we differ from the crowd. Our background as government lawyers means that we understand what agencies want from their legal services. We also possess a combination of exceptional legal expertise, understanding of policy and political context, as well as true know-how to deliver outcomes for government. Alongside our people skills and flexible delivery models, this makes us a clear choice for government clients.


In an increasingly interconnected and globalised world, businesses need to navigate a web of international rules to succeed on the world stage. These rules traverse complex areas such as trade and investment, climate change, human rights, information security, export controls, money laundering and sanctions compliance.

Lexbridge has helped businesses across a range of sectors to turn these rules into a competitive advantage and mitigate major cross-border risks.

Businesses seek our blend of commercial and international experience to understand and navigate this operating environment and add value to their bottom-line.

Research institutions, think tanks and not-for-profit organisations

Lexbridge helps not-for-profit organisations with advice, training, and capacity building in fields such as justice, human rights, arms control, humanitarian affairs, and trade and investment.

We have worked with organisations such as the Australian National University, the Lowy Institute, the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, and the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute to provide in-depth and strategic thinking on critical and emerging issues. In doing so, we have developed a strong awareness of the operating environment of these organisations and their strategic objectives.
