Environmental issues know no boundaries. Whether you are a company operating in the utilities, resources, property development, manufacturing or waste management sectors, a government addressing climate change issues or a financial institution wanting to maximise opportunities in emerging environmental markets or minimise environmental risks in your investment portfolio, our Environmental Markets team has the experience you need.
We advise public and private sector organisations in diverse industries including energy, mining, financial services, waste, transport, manufacturing, development and retail. We also advise regional and national governments on the implementation of climate change law and policy, market-based industry reforms and have prepared empowering regulation and draft industry codes. Advising and representing clients in contentious matters is also part of our service offering when other avenues of action are exhausted. We regularly appear in Courts and Tribunals and have successfully represented clients in many unique cases.
