The increasing complexity of environment and planning-related regulation poses a great challenge for organisations across all sectors.
Our environment and planning practice has extensive experience acting for both public and private sector clients across the full range of environmental and planning-related issues.
Recognised for the depth of our capabilities nationally, our expert team advises on the planning and environmental aspects of large-scale infrastructure projects, the resolution of highly contentious contamination and pollution disputes, native title and indigenous cultural heritage issues, and environmental assessment and due diligence for high value transactions. We also provide regulatory and compliance related advice to facilitate the energy transition, and advise on master planning and regulatory approval of urban development and regeneration projects.
Our strong relationships with state-based regulators mean our lawyers are often consulted about new legislation, enabling us to offer clients unique insight into the latest environmental and planning law developments.
We also assist with environmental crisis prevention and management by sharing our real and practical experience in responding to major incidents and crises, which often involve multi-jurisdictional issues and coordination across speciality teams.
