About us

Background

Legal representation was previously provided by the Legal Representation Office (LRO) which was established in 1994 to provide legal advice and representation in relation to the Royal Commission into the NSW Police Service. The LRO has now combined with the Office of the General Counsel and continues to provide advice and representation to witnesses appearing before the Independent Commission Against Corruption and the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (formerly the Police Integrity Commission).

The LRO also represented witnesses at various Special Commissions, Royal Commissions and selected Coronial Inquests.

Our services

  • We provide independent legal advice and representation to witnesses in relation to their involvement with the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) and the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC).
  • We provide legal representation at Royal and Special Commissions of Inquiry and in other matters as directed by the Attorney General.
