Maddocks has been capitalising on the arrival of DLA Piper’s Canberra team in 2017, including Caroline Atkins, Anthony Willis, Gavan Mackenzie and special counsel Katherine Armytage, further establishing the team’s strong presence in the government procurement arena. The ten-partner practice headed by Brendan Coady, Atkins and Robert Gregory has seen an increase in cyber resilience and data security matters, and recent high-value work in the government sector includes advising the Digital Transformation Agency on a whole-of-government agreement with each of SAP, Concur, IBM and Oracle. Willis assisted the Commonwealth Department of Defence with its acquisition and delivery of an on-demand, integrated and distributed core simulation capability to support collective training outcomes.
