The nature of our work means that we often consult with government officials to discuss policy ideas and proposals on behalf of clients. In Australia, Federal and some State laws require firms to be registered lobbyists to consult with government officials.
Aegis complies with these laws and is a registered lobbyist with the Australian Government and Governments of New South Wales and Western Australia.
Aegis is not a registered lobbyist with the Government of Queensland because in that State it is prohibited for firms to do government work and be a registered lobbyist. In Queensland Aegis chooses to be available for government work. However, this does not prevent us conducting policy and economic analysis or providing strategic advice to non-government clients in Queensland.
