Legal expenditure

Legal services are provided by a small team of lawyers comprised of junior lawyers provided from a law firm, with more senior level services provided by sole practitioner firms. Legal services are generally only outsourced where transactions involve complex project finance arrangements and this process is managed by the General Counsel.

During 2018–19 ARENA incurred $1,907,132 (excluding GST) in external legal services expenditure. ARENA will report the expenditure to the Office of Legal Services Coordination in accordance with the Legal Services Directions 2017.
