Free legal advice for P&Cs

P&C associations are able to use a new, free, legal advice clinic. 

The clinic is designed for small business operators, providing 30 minute consultations to help with a legal problem or query. Council has confirmed that P&Cs are eligible for this assistance. See their website for more information on the clinic and contact details.

If the legal matter might result in the P&C facing litigation (for example, for unfair dismissal or contractual problems with an employee, potential negligence), you must contact the P&C insurer to advise of the situation. The insurer can then arrange legal assistance which will be covered by the insurance policy. All P&C insurance (arranged through Council) is with Civic Insurance. Contact David McAlary on 62626115.

Our Council office is happy to help P&Cs with contracts and other compliance questions (but cannot provide legal advice). We are also happy to discuss your issue with you prior to you contact the above services.
