I am a specialist in all aspects of local government, planning and environment law. I have been involved in many significant environment and planning litigation cases including environmental prosecutions, planning appeals and project challenges relating to controversial developments involving retail, commercial and residential projects and licensed premises. I take a considered and commercially-aware approach in tackling environment and planning issues. I also have extensive experience in representing clients in Court meditations and conciliations.
My experience extends to providing advice to developer clients at all stages of the project life-cycle (including development and project applications, environmental assessment, developer and planning agreements and approvals) with consideration to relevant State and Commonwealth environment and planning legislation.
