Corrs energises Brisbane partnership

Corrs energises Brisbane partnership

Corrs Chambers Westgarth has expanded its energy & resources (E&R) practice with the appointment of former Clayton Utz lawyer James Minchinton to partner in Brisbane.

Corrs Chambers Westgarth has expanded its energy & resources (E&R) practice with the appointment of former Clayton Utz lawyer James Minchinton to partner in Brisbane.

Minchinton is the third new Corrs partner appointed in the past few months and will be working alongside Corrs Brisbane E&R practitioners John Kelly, Michael MacGinley and Bruce Adkins. 

Having practised in E&R law for the past decade, Minchinton has acted for a number of Australian and international clients in the fields of project development, exploration activities, regulatory approvals, landowner issues, overlapping tenures, Land Court hearings, native title, cultural heritage, commodity sales and M&A transactions.

Minchinton has also undertaken a number of in-house legal secondments for major mining and petroleum companies throughout his career, and was previously a statistician and process engineer at the Boyne Island Aluminium Smelter.

Corrs partner and CEO John Denton said: “James’ appointment is one of a number of exciting new partner additions at Corrs this year and underpins the firm’s growth ambitions.”

“James is joining a great team who are widely recognised as trusted strategic advisers in each of the core areas of energy and natural resources. His strengths, particularly in the increasingly complex area of project development, complement those of our existing team and will enable us to provide additional services to our energy and resources clients.”

Minchinton is a member of the Queensland State Committee of the Australian Energy & Resources Law Association (AMPLA) and the Queensland Law Society Committee on Mining & Resources Law.
