HWL poaches top environment lawyer

HWL poaches top environment lawyer

HWL Ebsworth has bolstered its Victorian planning and environment team with the hire of Mark Bartley as a partner in its Melbourne planning, environment and government group.

Prior to joining HWL, Bartley was a partner at DLA Piper, where he led the firm's national water group and was the Melbourne office leader for two years. He is the chair of the property council planning and governance committee.

Bartley is an accredited specialist in environmental, planning and local government law and his background includes acting for Commonwealth and state government departments, statutory authorities, local councils and private sector developers.

He is involved in all aspects of property development and regularly appears before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, planning panels and advisory committees.

Mark will join HWL Ebsworth on 22 August 2012.

"Mark has a reputation for being technically outstanding, while attracting exceptional client feedback and loyalty" said Juan Martinez, managing partner of HWL Ebsworth.

Bartley’s experience extends from infrastructure projects to commercial, industrial and residential developments and he offers significant water-related expertise, including advising on major project approvals, legal compliance programs, corporate governance, catchment management and other environmental policies, waste water re-use schemes, water trading and legislative and policy changes.

Previously, Bartley has served as a director of the Urban Development Institute of Australia (1998 to 2008) and also as a board member of the Victorian Planning and Environmental Law Association (1995 to 2004).

He was listed in Chambers Global 2011 as one of Australia's leading environment lawyers. Mark's appointment follows that of David Vorchheimer, who recently joined the Melbourne planning, environment and government group from the office of the Premier of Victoria.
