Energy and resources

Our energy and resources team provides legal services across the entire project lifecycle; from exploration, planning, development and procurement, through to construction, delivery, operation and sales. 

Our clients come from the power and utilities, oil and gas, renewable energy and mining industries, and include major corporations, exploration companies and privately owned businesses. 

Energy and renewables

We act for principals, suppliers, EPC contractors, subcontractors, financiers, consultants  and government entities, on a range of energy projects across Australia and the Asia Pacific, and we have worked on many large and complex projects. We have an in-depth understanding of the technologies, disciplines, requirements and regulations affecting this industry and how to convert this into fewer risks and more opportunities for our clients.


We have over 20 years' experience in advising Australian and international companies on the development and acquisition of mining and mineral assets in Australia. Our network of contacts in the mining industry offers our clients a wealth of information regarding opportunities in Australia and internationally for greenfield and brownfield projects.
