Australians have always been conscious of the land. In recent years, this consciousness has focussed more and more on the interplay between commercial developments and the environment.
Many business opportunities and transactions - from straightforward acquisitions to complex industrial developments - give rise to environmental issues. Decisions about ownership, management and development of the land are now an essential feature of business planning.
Clients understand this new reality. Our role is to provide prudent advice on the requirements, restrictions and consequences of their commercial decisions and guide them towards pragmatic solutions that support their enterprise and respect the environment.
Focus areas include:
- advice on industry development affected by environmental legislation
- advice on environmental compliance
- defence of environmental injunctions
- defence of prosecutions for noise, water and air pollution
