Agriculture Law, Aquaculture & Farming Litigation

We are experts in agriculture Law, aquaculture, and farming litigation. Various members of our team have ties to Western Australia’s agriculture and fishing industries in the Kimberley, Mid-West, Wheatbelt, and Great Southern.  We act for broad-acre farmers, industrial livestock producers, abattoirs, rendering and seafood businesses (commercial fishing, abalone and rock lobster), vignerons, and investors in agricultural managed investment schemes in Western Australia and interstate.

Our staffed Geraldton office, and a regular circuit presence in Carnarvon, services the Mid-West farming and horticulture, commercial fishing and rock lobster communities as well as tourism operators in the region. 

Our Perth office has assisted with legal disputes and provided litigation advice to pastoralists in the Pilbara, tourism and aquaculture operators in Broome, broad-acre farmers and livestock producers and abattoirs throughout the Wheatbelt (Bindoon, Brookton, York, Katanning, Pingelly, Southern Cross, Ravensthorpe, and Esperance), winery operators in the South-West, and abalone operations in Albany.

We are here to help if you have questions or need assistance with agriculture law, aquaculture, or farming litigation.
