Defence Industry legal experts launch new practice

SPONSORED CONTENT: Lawforce Alpha – a new specialist service for Defence industry

Australia relies more than ever on the products and services of Defence industry to achieve its sovereign capability goals. The Defence industry business environment is unique. Legal advice for industry isn’t the same as commonly available general commercial legal advice. It’s a matter of finding lawyers with the right experience, expertise and track record in this highly specialised area.

An Australian first, Lawforce Alpha is a veteran-owned specialist legal and commercial advisory service that had its formal industry launch at Land Forces 2022, and brought together the Defence industry experience and expertise of lawyers and partners Stephen von Muenster, Daniel Mendoza-Jones and their teams.

Lawforce Alpha partners have also participated in other recent major defence industry events including the Australian Defence Science, Technology and Research (ADSTAR) Summit 2022, Indo Pacific 2022, Chief of Army Symposium 2022 and the Land Environment Working Group (LEWG) 2022. The firm will also be participating in the Avalon 2023 Aerospace & Defence Exposition and Australian International Airshow in February – March 2023.

As partners in the new practice, Stephen and Daniel have combined their extensive experience advising industry clients of all sizes on all aspects of the Defence procurement, contract negotiation and contract management processes. Clients value their commercial acumen and commitment to understanding the client’s business. Both partners are well known from their combined 50-plus years of experience advising clients and delivering industry training across the maritime, land, air and cyber domains.

Both Daniel and Stephen are proud to be currently serving ADF reserve officers.

Their Defence industry clients have commended them for successfully advising on projects ranging from complex strategic prime contracts through to sub-contracting arrangements within the industry supply chain. They have been recognised for their expertise in understanding the procurement regulatory environment, working within ASDEFCON and bespoke contract frameworks, helping clients balance risk with commercial reward and in relation to other important contracting matters such as intellectual property and if needed, dispute solutions.

Lawforce Alpha’s aim is to enable and support its clients contribute to national sovereign capability through the supply of their products and services to our defence force and government security agencies by providing clients with cost effective innovative, timely and agile legal solutions.
