Lexbridge provides legal advice across all areas of international and government law. We regularly advise on the negotiation, interpretation and implementation of international agreements and arrangements and the consistency of potential actions with international obligations. We also provide advice and assistance on dispute settlement and arbitration.

Law reform and legislative development

We have extensive experience in managing major law reform and legislative development projects, including supporting clients to review existing legislation and proposals for reform; develop legal drafting instructions and draft bills.

Secondments and support to in-house teams

Lexbridge provides expert legal support to in-house government legal teams through secondments and other arrangements, at all levels of experience. We are available to supply specialist expertise, support major projects and taskforces, and supplement in-house teams during peak periods. Our lawyers understand the particular needs of government clients and work seamlessly as part of the team.

Training, capacity-building and technical assistance

Lexbridge is regularly engaged by governments, international organisations and non-government bodies to provide training, capacity building and technical assistance on international law and policy issues. Our experts have delivered dozens of training programs and technical assistance projects in a wide range of countries, in particular in the Asia-Pacific. We take a practical approach to training and technical assistance, focusing on the needs of our clients and drawing on our real-world experience as practitioners.

Research and analysis

Lexbridge provides research and analysis across all areas of international law. This includes research into the development and application of international law and technical analysis of international commitments.
