PUBLIC INTEREST LAW
Giving back to the community has always been and will continue to be a core value at Mark Gustavsson & Associates. Today, we represent a diverse group of public interest, charitable and not-for-profit organisations on a pro bono basis, including many organisations and communities progressing their native title and land rights aspirations.
We aim to make a real and valuable contribution to civil society by offering strategic legal advice in the public interest to defend or assert rights, develop the law or improve the administration of justice. Our clients are active in the cultural, health, religious and environmental sectors.
Our efforts have achieved significant outcomes for a wide variety of people. We have contributed to legislative reform and played a part in improving the understanding of social issues.
We also advise not-for-profit groups on critically important corporate governance and associated legal matters, including how best to structure their not-for-profit operations to help achieve tax exempt and deductible gift recipient status. This work is crucial to ensure their financial viability.
