Anthony Quahe created the Civic Legal brand in 2005 as a result of close consultations with WALGA and with the aim of providing specialist legal advice to the local government sector. Since that time, Civic Legal’s foundation values of clear legal analysis, responsiveness to clients and innovation have created a loyal following amongst many local governments.
The Civic Legal team has serviced about half of the local governments in Western Australia to date. We are therefore one of the few law firms in WA that has lawyers who specialise in and truly understand local governments and the laws that apply to them.
Our firm carries the WALGA seal of approval: we are on the panel of preferred suppliers of legal services to the local government sector in WA. Civic Legal is also principal legal sponsor of the annual WA Local Government Convention.
“Civic Legal have a highly professional and pragmatic approach to managing legal matters and their client relationships. Civic Legal provide advice that is very clear and easy to follow. All staff have dealt with our office in a professional manner and allows our Association to offer the best advice to our members.”

Civic Legal produces a newsletter written especially for the local government sector by our specialist local lawyers and governance support team.
“In dealing with the Civic Legal team, I found them to be cooperative, timely, informative, diligent and energetic in dealing with the matter at hand. They were very timely in getting information back to us. The outcome saved the organisation in excess of $50,000-$60,000 in costs. It was a good outcome – Council was very pleased.”
