​Contaminated land obligations and liabilities can prove to be a costly exercise for those in the construction, commercial, industrial and retail industries.


Our Planning Government Infrastructure and Environment group has expertise in assisting developers, builders, owners, consultants and other parties with contaminated land management throughout the acquisition, development, construction and divestment stages.

We advise on compliance with legislative and contractual obligations, environmental protection licensing and waste management obligations. We also act for clients in defending prosecutions for environmental offences.


Our group has expertise in relation to the following areas of environmental contamination:

  • land contamination assessments
  • notification, remediation and disposal of contaminated sites
  • rehabilitation agreements
