As environmental regulation becomes more complex and prescriptive, communities are not only better informed, but have increasingly higher performance expectations.

The risk of brand damage associated with non-compliance and prosecution is often higher than the risk of penalties.

Against this background, our clients value our extensive experience in advising across Australia and our understanding of the way in which regulators are likely to respond from both a policy and enforcement perspective.

Adopting a ‘prevention is better than cure’ approach, our environmental team is experienced in advising on environmental management systems and pathways to minimise risk for organisations and their directors, officers and managers.
