Indigenous Australians

Our work covers many areas: native title claims, exploration and mining agreements, corporate governance, trust management (in association with tax and financial advisers), national park joint management, as well as leasing and otherwise dealing with land trust and native title lands.

We help develop and implement native title and cultural heritage agreements. Clients appreciate our ability to identify and focus on the most relevant issues, and to balance short term and long term planning.

We are proud of our record of innovative work in these areas, which is recognised by independent reviewers Doyles, who have recommended our firm as a whole, and recognised two of our directors Michael Neal and Matt Patterson as leading native title lawyers in Australia.  David Knobel has also been recognised as a native title rising star in Australia which has only five nominees in the category
