Environmental law governs how people interact with the environment by regulating the use, development and protection of natural and physical resources. It’s an area of law that is continuously developing and can be complex.
Our clients benefit from our experience gained from many years of advising on land development projects within urban and rural environments. We recognise the intricacies involved with central and local government planning regulation, different consenting and rezoning pathways, and the matrix of environmental issues that arise on complex projects.
We act for a wide range of clients including property developers, plantation forest owners, retirement village operators, large format retailers, insurance companies and individual landowners, amongst others.
Our work includes residential, commercial and rural projects, and involves a diverse range of issues such as water use, heritage buildings, forestry, contaminated land and natural hazards.
As an experienced environmental lawyer Chris Fowler has in-depth knowledge and expertise to navigate through any environmental problem or opportunity.
