This listing details leading South Australian based Senior Counsel and Junior Counsel practising within the areas of planning and/or environment matters. It is compiled on the back of feedback from solicitors practising within these areas.
Stuart Henry SC sits as South Australia’s pick of Senior Counsel in the area and, in particular on environment matters while “elder statesman” Brian Hayes QC continues to be well regarded.
Experienced junior counsel in the area of planning and environment are rare as for cost and efficiency reasons many firms perform a substantial degree of advocacy work themselves or simply utlise the services of Senior Counsel only. Only Kym Tredrea was seen as effectively developing a practice within the area while Mark Douglas who only arrived at the bar in 2011 was seen as “promising”.
Stuart Henry SC – Carrington Chambers
Brian Hayes QC – Murray Chambers
