Leading Planning & Environment Barristers – Western Australia, 2012

This listing details leading Western 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.

With Western Australia not possessing the same high volumes of planning appeals that sustains the planning bar in other major Australian states and solicitors also performing advocacy work, “specialist” planning and environment barristers were thin on the ground.

At a Senior Counsel level former Phillips Fox (now Lavan Legal) Partner Peter McGowan SC was seen as “probably the only real specialist” while Sam Vandongen SC “background as a prosecutor comes in handy” on environment matters.

Henry Jackson continues to be the only Western Australian based Junior Counsel identified as having established a specialty in the area.
