McCullough Robertson is a leading independent Australian law firm with more than 430 employees and 51 partners across our Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle offices.

Our water industry lawyers have been involved in a diverse range of matters involving water management, from the negotiation of complex supply agreements, to the construction of water transportation pipelines and water and waste water treatment plants. Through our experience assisting the resources and agribusiness sectors, we bring a deep understanding of the needs of industry to the consideration of water access and management.

We provide practical and technical advice and solutions to all aspects of water resource law and management. We understand the complex and ever-changing regulatory environment for water resource planning and administration, and the opportunities and constraints this places on the water industry sector.

We are experienced in acting for water boards, water service providers, resource operations and licence holders and regularly provide advice to primary producers on water entitlements (including water entitlement disputes), water trading and water resource planning and management.
