What the team is known for
McCullough Robertson maintains an established presence on the East Coast with a long-standing, in-depth relationship with the Queensland coal sector, advising domestic and prominent international mining companies. The team represents clients across both the extractive industries and renewable energy market. The firm is acknowledged for offering a full 'pit to port' service on large-scale projects, coordinating expertise from across the firm to service everything from transactional matters to related environmental and cultural heritage approvals, health and safety and other regulatory issues and, where necessary, disputes. Principally active in Queensland and New South Wales, but also prominent on the national scene, the practice has recent mandates with Northern Territory, Tasmanian, and Western Australian connections. Its key clients include Diatreme Resources, Vitrinite and Tri-Star Group.
"The firm has a deep understanding of the factors that lead to a successful resource industry acquisition and therefore can provide not just legal but strategic advice."
"Calls and emails are responded to as soon as possible by all staff we've had contact with."
McCullough Robertson advised Tri-Star on a number of corporate and regulatory issues, including the acquisition of gold tenements in North Queensland and sale of a gas tenement to a junior explorer.
Damien Clarke is based in Brisbane and regularly advises mining sector clients on a range of commercial matters, including transactional and taxation issues. "Damien is someone you can rely on to bring the team together to get things done. He has a depth of experience in coal sector transactions in Queensland."
