Judicate Lawyers has experience in the laws regarding the transport and storage of dangerous and hazardous goods.
Our team acted for CGU Insurance when the Butler transport depot exploded on Coode Island which spread hazardous materials into nearby council and state government wetland areas, the adjoining Maribyrnong River and over surrounding residential and business land owners. This involved complex insurance and clean up issues with the Environment Protection Authority, state government departments, local council and adjoining land owners.
Judicate Lawyers also acts for Heritage Insight, one of Australia's foremost firms of consulting archaeologists. We have experience in advising on Aboriginal Heritage issues and on the designation and protection of heritage and historic sights and on the conduct and completion of cultural heritage management plans.
Judicate Lawyers also acts for town and urban planners and developers on a range of management and enforcement issues arising under Commonwealth and Victorian environmental protection legislation.
