Since the introduction of the Native Title Act we have acted in relation to the negotiation, execution and registration of many native title exploration and production agreements, and have worked hard to establish good working relations with Aboriginal claimant groups in Australia and their legal advisers.
We pride ourselves on our pragmatic and people-focussed approach to furthering our clients’ interests, and maintaining relationships. We recognise that a negotiated outcome can be the better outcome for our clients, as different parties need to continue to work with each other after agreement has been reached.
In some cases, agreement is not possible and we can help you navigate through the complex requirements of native title claims proceeding through the Federal Court of Australia. We have a good working relationship with leading barristers around Australia who specialise in this complex area.
