KWM poaches DLA partner

KWM poaches DLA partner

King & Wood Mallesons’ environment, planning & native title practice has attracted former DLA Piper partner Mark Beaufoy.


Beaufoy joined KWM’s Melbourne office in November to support its national environment practice, which is steered by co-heads Debra Townsend and Matthew Austin.

Beaufoy was previously the lead environment partner in DLA’s Australian practice. He has extensive transactional and projects experience and a strong track record advising on and managing legal risks relating to site contamination and brown-field transactions and redevelopment.

He is experienced in advising on environmental assessment requirements and planning and environmental approvals for major development and infrastructure projects and has worked on a number of multi-jurisdictional environmental assessment and approval processes involving state and Commonwealth legislation.

Beaufoy regularly advises on environmental and planning regulatory obligations and compliance, including pollution control, waste, greenhouse and energy reporting and investigation and remediation strategies for contaminated sites.

 He is experienced advising on environmental due diligence and legal strategies for managing environmental legal risk in property and business transactions. Mark has worked on the environmental aspects of major transactions in the transport, energy, mining, water, pharmaceutical, equipment hire and steel industries.

Beaufoy joins a number of other recent lateral partner hires to the firm’s national environment practice, including Scott Singleton, who joined KWM’s Brisbane office from Minter Ellison, and Sally Audeyev, who joined KWM’s Perth office from Ashurst.
