Getting the right advice on environmental issues is critical in today’s operating environment.
Our team will work in partnership with you to identify, negotiate and implement practical solutions that meet your business objectives as well as regulatory requirements.
We have extensive experience and proven expertise in a range of industries including mining, petroleum, wine, manufacturing, property development, environmental consultancy, financial services, agribusiness and energy. We help our clients communicate with regulators and help regulators understand the practical constraints faced by industry. This enables us to find and negotiate solutions that work in the real world – on the ground and in the plant.
Whether projects are big or small, we’ve assisted our clients to identify best-fit approvals pathways, prepare applications and supporting documentation (including detailed environmental impact assessments), engage with assessing authorities, environmental regulators and stakeholders, and negotiate practical and appropriate conditions of consent.
Our team regularly assists businesses to understand the range of planning and development approvals that their projects require and guides them through the application and assessment processes. Our experience includes the following:
Providing advice about appeal rights and procedures, and helping clients through the planning appeal process where necessary.
Managing environmental issues associated with project development, including compliance requirements and interrelated authorisations.
Advising developers about site contamination risks and liabilities, including investigation and management obligations, site contamination audit requirements and transfer of liability.
Our specialist industry knowledge and practical approach places our clients in the best possible position to not only understand and manage their environmental obligations, but also to get approvals and agreements in place to enable efficient and sustainable business growth.
