Australia’s population continues to grow at a rapid pace. The sustained health of Australia’s water and waste systems involves complex political and policy considerations, and requires innovative legislative and regulatory approaches. 

The dynamic nature of these industries necessitates expert advice that navigates the technical, commercial and legal issues impacting projects and activities in each sector. 

Corrs has market-leading experience advising on the complex statutory regimes that govern water and waste in Australia. We assist clients with water transactions, water recycling and re-use regulation, development around rivers and waterbodies and flooding issues in the context of development.

We also have extensive experience advising on waste management, waste processing and waste-to-energy (WfE) projects and transactions, including Australia’s largest WfE facility. Our team of domestically and internationally recognised experts have an excellent understanding of the issues involved, enabling us to support our clients to operate successfully in this rapidly evolving sector.
