Energy & Resources

“The team is very responsive, it has always turned work around within the time frames requested, even when requests were very tight.”

Chambers Asia Pacific 2014

We provide a multi-disciplined  energy and resources team, bringing together experts in competition and regulation, financial services, tax, infrastructure, environment, employment, intellectual property, dispute resolution and other specialist areas, to deliver a commercially focused, solutions-orientated service.

Energy and resources projects are typically complex, capital intensive initiatives that raise unique challenges around infrastructure, services (including finance), native title, environment, land tenure, government regulation and industrial relations.

These projects demand legal advisers who can deal with multifaceted projects; who understand the commercial, technical and practical issues as well as the legal and contractual ones, while keeping the interests of the various stakeholders in mind.

  • native title
  • capital fundraising & financial services

We act for a variety of participants in the mining and oil and gas sectors, both in the conventional and the non-conventional sectors, including coal seam gas and LNG as well as the electricity and renewable energy sectors. We provide advice and assistance with documents, regulations and dispute resolution at all stages from the exploration phase through to development, production and sales.

Our experience

We have experience in a range of complex projects including:

  • all aspects of exploration and production activities, including environmental and native title approvals and landholder liaison
  • sale, acquisition and financing of infrastructure and assets
