Environment & Planning
Developing environment and planning strategies that go beyond just securing the relevant approvals is critical for organisations looking to grow, while upholding their social license to operate.
Environment and planning law is based on a complex array of laws and policies, so your legal advice needs to be both comprehensive and clear.
