Within: Transport (rail, road, air and sea)

Buddle Findlay's transport practice is built on the firm's strength in projects, resource management and environmental law. It is one of three firm's on the panel of the New Zealand Transport Agency, for which it handled the East West Link Project to connect the Onehunga-Penrose industrial hub with the state highway network. Auckland-based resource management partners¬†Patrick Mulligan¬†and Jennifer Caldwell, along with special counsel Vanessa Evitt¬†and senior associate Matthew Gribben, handled that matter. Paul Beverley¬†, who leads the environment and¬†MńĀori law team in Wellington, and partners¬†David Allen¬†and David Randal¬†worked on significant projects to improve road infrastructure between the¬†Taranaki and the Waikato regions, which raised important issues around the use of conservation land. The firm also counts Auckland Council, CentrePort and¬†Greater Wellington Regional Council among its clients.
