Environmental Law


The environment and the way we protect, manage and use it is multi-faceted. So too are the laws that apply to it.  Environmental law can be complex, but with the right advice it doesn’t need to be.  Our environmental law specialists will help you navigate the regulatory framework to achieve your desired outcomes.

Govett Quilliam assists our clients across a broad range of environmental law matters, including water law, coastal rights and resources, conservation law, QEII covenants, biosecurity issues, mining and quarrying and forestry.

We have an in-depth knowledge of related legislation, including the Biosecurity Act 1993; Conservation Act 1987; Continental Shelf Act 1964; Environment Act 1986; Reserves Act 1977, Fisheries Act 1996; Foreshore and Seabed Revesting Act 1991; Hauraki Gulf Marine Park Act 2000; Maritime Transport Act 1994 and the Historic Places Act 1993. We have the skills and knowledge to assist you, whatever your environmental legal needs may be.
