Business Overview

On 1 March 2012, Blake Dawson and Ashurst combined their practices in Asia and Blake Dawson adopted the Ashurst brand in Australia. Ashurst is an international law firm with a network spanning Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America and the Middle East. Members of our experienced team have been undertaking legal work in the climate change area since 1997. Our climate change team consists of specialist lawyers drawn from our environment, resources and energy, infrastructure, corporate, banking and finance, taxation and litigation teams. We have expertise in advising clients in multiple jurisdictions on the many issues relevant to climate change risks and opportunities. We advise clients in a wide range of industries on various issues associated with climate change, including the rights and obligations created by the Clean Energy Act 2011 and the opportunities presented by the Carbon Farming Initiative. We have assisted clients to develop carbon price cost mitigation strategies and to draft carbon clauses for inclusion in a wide range of contracts. We also have experience in advising on renewable energy, carbon capture and storage and forestry projects, both in Australia and overseas.
